Bauval is mainly known for his Orion Correlation Theory (OCT), which he developed in 1983, and was published in the Oxford Journal Discussions in Egyptology in 1989. He now lives with his wife Michele in Southern Spain, near Malaga. They have two children: Candice and Jonathan, who live in England.
Robert will be combining two talks under the Search for Origins of Civilisation in Egypt.
THE ORION CORRELATION THEORY (OCT).
Robert Bauval will tell his story of how he developed the OCT and the huge controversy that it caused. He will also examine the critical reviews on the OCT by various scholars, with special reference to the “BBC Horizon scandal” of 1999. In early 2015 the OCT was subjected to stringent quantitative and statistical analysis by the Department of Physics and Mathematics of the University of Salento in southern Italy, which will also be discussed. The lecture is fully illustrated.
THE UNSOLVED MYSTERY OF THE GREAT SPHINX OF GIZA
Who conceived this amazing monument? When? How? Why? Is it just the ‘guardian of the Giza Pyramids’ or something else? What else? Why the lion-man symbolism? Why is it gazing towards cardinal east? Did it have a name? Is it connected to the Pyramids? What is the meaning of the megalithic temples next to it? Is there a secret chamber underneath the Sphinx as many have claimed? Bestselling author and engineer Robert Bauval will discuss all these issues in a fully illustrated lecture.
