Spring The 'Heretics' of Egyptology Since earlythe international public has been made aware through a vast media campaign of three major discoveries about the Three Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza that could change our perception of the origins of civilization forever. These discoveries, however, are regarded as the product of extreme heresy in Egyptological circles and, in a more general manner, in the halls of academia. The reasons are these: The age of years ascribed by Egyptologists to the Sphinx is wrong.
Share this article Share The scientists said in a joint statement they have observed 'thermal anomalies' on the monuments, including on the Khufu pyramid where some of the limestone blocks were hotter than others.
Experts are scanning the Khufu pyramid of Giza stock image pictured with a Sphinx in the foreground and the Khafre pyramid as well as two pyramids in Dahshur, all of which are south of Cairo. Khufu was built by the son of Snefru, founder of the fourth dynasty, who lived between 2, and 2, BC The experts said in a joint statement they had observed thermal 'anomalies' on the monuments, including on the Khufu pyramid.
He doesn't,' Antiquities Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty said. Carson's comments have received little attention in Egypt, where people are accustomed to accept expert views about the 4,year-old structures. They have drawn interest in the US, though, where the retired neurosurgeon has jumped to the top of the Republican presidential field.
Last week, Carson stood by his belief that Egypt's great pyramids were built by the Biblical figure Joseph to store grain, an assertion dismissed by experts who said its accepted science that they were tombs. He said at a book signing: Antiquities Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty and technical experts working on the project showed the higher temperature being detected in three specific adjacent stones at the bottom of the pyramid in a live thermal camera presentation to journalists.
While inspecting the area, el-Damaty said they found 'that there is something like a small passage in the ground that you can see, leading up to the pyramids ground, reaching an area with a different temperature. What will be behind it? Experts are scanning the Khafre pyramid of Giza as well as two pyramids in Dahshur, all of which are south of Cairo.
Khufu was built by the son of Snefru, founder of the fourth dynasty, who lived between 2, and 2, BCwhile Khafre was built by the son of Khufu.
The two pyramids at Dahshur were built by Snefru. The hi-tech technique could mark a new era of discoveries. Here, an engineer sets up the infrared thermography equipment which is being used to map the temperature of the walls of the Giza pyramids The most famous Egyptian pyramids are those found at Giza stock image on the outskirts of Cairo.
Several of the Giza pyramids are counted among the largest structures ever built, with the Pyramid of Khufu being the largest in Egypt. It is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence The Great Pyramid contains the most elaborate system of passages and chambers within any pyramid.
Two chambers have been found, including the King's Chamber pictured but no body was found in the sarcophagus. He reigned for 24 years during which time the enormous structure was constructed - the only one of its kind to contain passages and chambers above ground.
Incredibly, despite leaving such a large architectural legacy, little is known about the ruler who lived between 2, and 2,BC. A small ivory statue measuring three inches tall 9cm is the only depiction of Khufu.
It wasn't found at the pyramid, but south of the Temple of Osiris at Abydos. According to ancient manuscripts written after his death, Khufu led military campaigns into Sinai, Nuba and Libya. He's thought to have been a ruthless and cruel despot, according to ancient historians Diodorus and Herodotus.
But he's also thought to have been fascinated by tales of magic and left a rich cultural legacy. Nevertheless, he must have been able to organise and control hoards of workers to build his pyramid, which is thought to have been funded by taxes.
Not a single body has been found in any of the three pyramids at Giza, leading to hopes that the bodies of the pharaohs and their queens may remain undisturbed in the vast necropolises.
