The Pyramid Code is a documentary series exploring the mysteries of the ancient Egyptians, their sophisticated technology, sacred cosmology, and the importance of what they left us. The Pyramid Code gives evidence to support the idea that the pyramids were not tombs and are likely much older than traditional Egyptology tells us.

Prof Carmen Boulter’s research focuses on ancient Egypt — something she has been fascinated by since childhood.

It was a chance encounter in front of the Sphinx that led to a U of C researcher’s TV series.

The series, set to be released in late October, challenges a number of notions currently held on ancient Egypt.

Immediately after finishing the manuscript which was to become the basis for her imminent five part documentary, University of Calgary faculty of education professor Carmen Boulter set it aside and went to Taiwan.

Upon her return, she decided to take another trip. This was to Egypt,        which for Boulter, who has been fascinated by ancient Egypt since childhood, is a startlingly frequent occurrence.

While staying in the small town at the foot of the Sphinx she met a Hollywood director who read the manuscript and immediately decided he wanted to film it as a documentary.

“It goes on to explain that ancient Egypt is much older than traditional Egyptology claims,” she said. “It gives evidence of high-level technology and how it was used. It challenges the theory that the pyramids were tombs for pharaohs built by slaves and presents a new way of interpreting art, symbolism and hieroglyphic writing.”

The films draw on the testimony of a number of experts, ranging from archaeologists to authors to physicists. The work came out of Boulter’s earlier book, Angles and Archetypes: an Evolutionary Map of Feminine Consciousness, which had encompassed a study of ancient Egyptian goddesses and inspired her to continue her research in that field.



When examining ancient cultures, we tend to look through the lenses of our current cultural paradigm, yet subtle details are easily missed when interpreting ancient Egypt from a patriarchal perspective. Dr. Carmen Boulter will be speaking about archetypes of the empowered feminine in ancient Egypt showing evidence which is clearly depicted in the symbols on temple walls and ancient artifacts. The ancient Egyptians had a sacred cosmology that held the sacred feminine in balance with the sacred masculine thus they were able to function as empowered humans. Carmen will also explore the matriarchal roots of dynastic Egypt.
