Secret to Great Pyramid's near perfect alignment possibly found

Though slightly lopsided, the towering, Great Pyramid of Giza is an ancient feat of engineering, and now an archaeologist has figured out how the Egyptians may have aligned the monument almost perfectly along the cardinal points, north-south-east-west — they may have used the fall equinox. The fall equinox occurs halfway between the summer and winter solstices, when Earth's tilt is such that the length of the day and nightare almost the same. About 4,500 years ago, Egyptian pharaoh Khufu had the Great Pyramid of Giza constructed; it is the largest of the three pyramids — now standing about 455 feet...

Giza Pyramid: Scientist Suggests There is an ‘Iron Throne’ in Unexplored Cavity

In November 2017, the magazine Nature published the results of the ScanPyramids project revealing that there is a large cavity at least 30 meters long within the Pyramid of Cheops (Giza Pyramid) in Egypt. Since then, scientists and archaeologists around the world have been trying to discover what this void contains and what its purpose was. Giulio Magli, professor of Mathematics and Archaeoastronomy at the Politecnico di Milano, has proposed one of the first hypotheses; his conclusions were published by Eurekalert. According to the scientist, the newly found chamber was hardly a mistake made during the construction, neither did it...

The Fascinating Link Between the Pyramids & Otherworldly Visitors

I have always been fascinated by the Egyptian pyramids. As a kid, I wasn’t even aware of the many other types of pyramids that exist on this planet, their significance, or incredible history. All I knew of were the huge yellowish orange triangular Egyptian pyramids that gave me a sense of wonder and amazement about our past. Who built them? How did were they built? Why were they built? Could it have been ET’s?! It was all so fascinating to me. As I was doing research for an article I wrote about anomalies with the Great Pyramid that Graham Hancock...

'Big void' identified in Khufu's Great Pyramid at Giza

The mysteries of the pyramids have deepened with the discovery of what appears to be a giant void within the Khufu, or Cheops, monument in Egypt. It is not known why the cavity exists or indeed if it holds anything of value because it is not obviously accessible. Japanese and French scientists made the announcement after two years of study at the famous pyramid complex. They have been using a technique called muography, which can sense density changes inside large rock structures. The Great Pyramid, or Khufu's Pyramid, was constructed during the reign of Pharaoh Khufu between 2509 and 2483...
