CAIRO (AP) — The Egyptian Museum in Cairo on Thursday began putting on display the country's oldest papyruses, which date back 4,500 years, detailing the daily life of the pyramid-builders.
The items are from the 4th Dynasty of King Khufu, also known as Cheops, for whom the Great Pyramid of Giza was built as a tomb.
Egypt's Antiquities Minister Khaled el-Anany told reporters as the exhibition was unveiled that the papyruses were discovered in 2013 by an Egyptian-French mission inside caves in the port of Wadi el-Jarf. The ancient port is located 119 kilometers (74 miles) from the city of Suez.
El-Anany said, the items display are "the oldest" papyruses in Egypt. Museum chief Tarek Tawfiq said the papyruses depict the daily routine of the workers, who also transferred building material from the Red Sea port to Giza.
On display are a total of six out of the 30 discovered papyruses, according to Hussein Abdel-Bassir, another ministry official. "These show the administrative power and the central nature of the state at the time of Khufu," he said.

This is the group of fragments announced back in 2013. If you click through, you can see the original document with Khufu's name on it... this is the document they showed (partly) when they made the original announcement. You can see Khufu's name in the cartouche in the 4th column from the right... his official name is spelled out, "Khnum-Khufu" along with some of his other names and titles (to the right of that is a "Golden Horus."

This is a really cool find and all. Except that Egypt knows damn well there are much, much older written records underneath the Sphinyx's right paw....

I just find it too hard to believe that many of these old papyruses are not just pure fiction.

Man trying to take explain or take credit credit for things that they may not have actually done.

Except... Graham Hancock actualy investigated this one (so did others) There are hollows (this limestone is riddled with tiny caves and pockets) but no chambers.

If the sphinx is actually much older than the pyramids-wouldn't chambers/passages underneath be deformed as well?

edit to add -I mean with what looks like water erosion from being submerged for thousands of years before the pyramids-I would think that the water would warp any chambers/passages under it.

Water erodes limestone, it doesn't 'deform' it.

I was referring to any man made passages or chambers-not the stone itself.

How after time-they would appear less and less like they were man made by filling up with sand/sediment or even just collapsing in areas-making them lose the sharp geometry you might see in newer underground areas mapped with ground penetrating radar.

Any man-made passages or chambers beneath the Sphinx would be of the stone itself. The Sphinx is carved out of a limestone outcropping. Beneath it is solid (relatively, of course) stone.

Dude, the entire edifice has been examined for passages and chambers and apart from the obvious ones on the surface, they don't exist. Now you may be thinking "yeah, because orthodoxy is hiding it", but the expedition to find the lost chamber under the sphinx, was conducted by Hugh Lynn Cayce (son of Edgar Cayce) and guided by Zahi Hawass, and Mark Lehner, who you probably don't know, had his education paid for by the Cayce organisation the A.R.E. so was indebted to them

They found nothing, despite using ground penetrating radar. Hugh Lynn Cayce is quoted as saying that "his father's best work was in healing people and not in archaeological predictions."

It's evidence of a lot of stone being moved to Giza. While it doesn't alone prove Khufu built the pyramid, it is a very powerful piece of anecdotal evidence.

The Giza Radiocarbon project did that, though the fringe doesn't believe it because they're still reading that radiocarbon dating isn't accurate from creationist authors
