The star Thuban (aDraconis) was the northern pole star around 2600 BC, during the time of the ancient Egyptians.
‘There is no doubt that the Pyramids of Giza, the best known of all the Egyptian monuments, have a strong connection to the epoch 2,600 to 2,300 BC, the same dates as Stonehenge. There is also no doubt that they show many signs of a far earlier genesis - again like Stonehenge. Indeed, the same geometrical and astronomical concerns that the megaliths express, linked to the same quest for immortality, are found not only in Egypt but in a great band of cultures encircling the globe and extending back in time to the remotest antiquity.’
