    That is a rumour I think, I think Tom Slemen has circulated it and made it urban myth. But where is the evidence for this?
    Did Mackenzie make some sort of will?
    Plus, has anyone ever tried to open the pyramid?

    I hope you're not encouraging people to open the pyramid, Carrie?
    This is one story that Tom Slemen didn't start, and, as far as I know, it's true.
    William Mackenzie was a gambler, and wanted to be buried sitting up at a card table holding a winning hand.

    ta kev!

    I have always been interested in the pyramid since I was a kid.

    I fear that if anything is developed on the site, it will be cleared away

    It better bloody not be cleared!!!! The place needs a sympathetic restoration and the tomb left alone.

    i know. but i bet modern developers wouldn't think that way!

    I remember my dad telling me as a kid that some workmen had once tried to open the tomb but been unsuccessful. I dont know if that is true at all...

    Philip...Where does the myth originate?

    Thanks for the story Gerard, I wonder what happened to the decoration atound the circle crest on the grave. You can see where it used to be.

    Can't remember, Carrie, but I heard about it years before Tom Slemen's books.
    And it just makes sense - why else have such an unusual shape?
    What date was TS's first book, BTW?
