British, Egyptian archaeologists map out regions beneath Pyramids
CAIRO, Sept 28 (KUNA) -- A team of British and Egyptian archaeologists are excavating beneath the three Pyramids of Giza to find more about the mystery of the Pyramids and their builders.
"The British team, which hails from the University of Birmingham, is using the latest and most up-to-date equipment to seek the mystery of the Pyramids," said Zahi Hawwas, Secretary General of the Higher Council for Antiquities in Egypt. The team is employing a special radar that would help create an archaelogical map of the subterranean region beneath the three Pyramids in Giza, Hawwas added.
The British-Egyptian team will spend the next five years studying the entire region of the Pyramids and the Sphinx, including photographing everything for careful study, indicated Zahi Hawwas.
Already, the team has discovered, through radar-photograhy technique, the possible existence of holes or gaps behind the Sphinx which could be theoretically the burrial spots of the 26th Pharonic dynasty dating back to B.
The Persian Gulf? Iran? Is the "Hall of Records" code for Shushan the palace? Or Abadan, the place of destruction in the Iran-Iraq war...
Enoch was instructed by God to record the events which ocurred prior to, and were responsible for, the Flood, and make three copies. He was then instructed to hide these copies in different locations. The theory is that the Sphinx is one of those locations.
Thanks for the PING...:)
Must have missed this on the way through the topics. Funny, there's only 1.3 million of 'em...

Think they'll find Amelia Earhardt?
Nah. Been too long.
Thanks for the ping. I missed the news nineteen months ago...
Goes to show you how up to date I am on this stuff, even though it interests me.
I wonder how far along they are.

[ping, with a reprise clipped from one of my replies in another topic]
In "COUNTING THE STONES: How Many Blocks in Khufu's Great Pyramid?" by Anthony Sakovich, KMT A MODERN JOURNAL OF ANCIENT EGYPT, VOLUME 13, Number 3, FALL 2002, a number of approximately 4 million is given for the number of stones in the Khufu pyramid. The largest stones are some of the corbels, the rest vary a great deal in size. The most common size runs about 2 tons.
Contrast this to Zahi Hawass, who claimed a few years ago that 2.3 million (the commonly used figure for the number of stones) was far too HIGH, and that the average weight of the stones was around 1000 pounds, or even less.

They need to send in Daniel Jackson.
You got me again. I didn't notice it was 3 years old until I got to post 5.
Nah. They'll find the relocated contents of Al Capone's vault (Much Geraldo's chagrin).
Three years old? Nope, you've stumbled into one of our Time Travel Experiments. I'm going to have to add you to the Top Secret TTE Ping List now.
Always thought the construction would be a honeycomb built on an existing hill. Hope they come up with something before I croak. I'd really like to know.
Just updating the GGG info, not sending a general distribution.
