Abstract:
An interview with Joseph Davidovits reveals his claim to have solved the mystery of the pyramids. Davidovits says that the pyramids were constructed from synthetic stones made of geopolymeric concrete. To support this theory, he has produced a concrete that matches the pyramid stones and has accumulated other pertinent evidence. Davidovits discusses his theories as well as some modern applications for geopolymeric concrete.
