they found the canals, boats, port at the foot of the pyramid, and a CONTEMPORARY FIRST HAND WRITTEN ACCOUNT OF HOW THEY DID IT.


No they are speculating a different use of the structures already found. The mantra "... archaeologists solve the mystery of the..." are just words that introduces yet another theory, or re-hash of an old theory.

I am not dismissing this theory, only that it is just another plausible one that can be added to the pile.

Very good find.

My Hope is that when Jesus Christ comes back and raises the dead, we'll get a birds eye view closeup of real live Mummies in action.

The only new thing here is that an archaeologist claims to have discovered canals that went from the Nile to,the pyramid. Ive yet to the evidence, but its quite plausible. It doesnt really change anything about the pyramid though. Its long been thought that the blocks were transported by boat from the excavation sites. This just brings it close to the base of the pyramid. It doesnt date the pyramid. It doesnt show what the pyramid was for and it doesnt explain how the blocks were elevated or why the great pyramid had no tomb in it but they claim it waa a tomb anyhow. How was it aligned? How was it fit so precisely? How were these blocks cut with copper hand tools? (They werent)

Id imagine those blocks would weigh the ship down quite a bit.

Seriously people, cmon!


How they (probably) transported the material to build the pyramid answers so little. Sorry - "Mystery of the Great Pyramid of Giza solved" ....... now you c'mon!

sigh - the giza plateau is UPHILL from the nile chanel - good luck with an uphill canal - yes you can install locks - but where did the water come from ???

ETS - also - why do people insist on blitheley ignoring the giza quarry - that still bears the scars of large scale block extraction of rock that can be matched to the pyramids ????`

I wanna see some more info about that canals that Lehner found there.

The canal work for the harbour is one of the first things that were done by the planners.

Harte,up to a little reading?

Mehrer's journal is old news. It tells of the transportation of the Tura limestone outer stones (now missing, mostly) on Khufu's pyarmid.

The presence of canals at Giza has been known for quite some time - longer than we've known about Mehrer.

Just wanted to add - someone posted the number of blocks in the GP. This is actually unknown. The number used (which is only one of a dozen different estimates - one of which has less than a million) would be correct if the GP was a solid pyramid built of identical stones.

We know that is not the case.

Guess you guys haven't heard that Stephen Hawking has said he thinks that there might be some validity to the theory that the pyramids were built by time travelers?

There was actually a documentary on here in the UK just last night about this. An archaeological team have found evidence of the canal leading to the pyramid site, along with these documents that seem to show them boating the rocks in.

They reconstructed one of the boats, cut a limestone block, hauled it onto the boat, floated it as close as they could to the pyramids. It all seemed to work pretty well.

Yeah...The Khufu and Menkaure quarries are so close to the pyramids built from them that there was no need
For any crazy feats of engineering to get the blocks from the quarry to the construction site. Khafra's quarry is a little harder to pinpoint and his pyramid looks to have had its blocks taken from a couple of sites but even then, very close by so again... no large scale fears required for transportation purposes.

Someone had a great post a few years ago about lighter than air travel. It is pretty low tech and has been proven it can life fantastic weights.

"The Granite came from 533 miles away in Aswan"

complete BS.

The Egyptians DID NOT build the pyramids.

So the 98 ft deep quarry directly behind the GP with the same exact rock with the same exact chemical composition that's in the GP is a magical coincidence? No... you've got no evidence of anything other than Egyptians building pyramids. Your post is the BS, not the evidence.

Maybe i shouldve titled the thread "A" mystery of the great pyramid may have been solved?

i remember this being the case when i was a kid learning about egypt. i even remember seeing them rebuild one of the boats from reeds and rope to see if it would work with a scale size block in a documentary years ago. i also remember this being the same theory for how the large granite blocks were transported to the site. now if only they would move that one block in the pyramid that would prove whether or not there is a spiral ramp inside the pyramids to get those blocks up the rest of the 2/3rds.


They wouldn't need a spiral ramp inside the pyramid. Outdoors would do just as well. My guess is that they polished down the stones on the current working level. Then all the waste chippings were used either to pack the inside of the pyramid or as counterweights to raise up blocks. If there was a lot more rain, then perhaps they could create wells that could be used to raise and lower those boats.

This shows how the blocks were elevated. Easy Peasy. Also shows how they could have used canals and the harbour.

Lehner has written about the canals and artificial harbor built to ease the import of limestone for the outer casing and granite for the various interior sturctures, producing images depicting such as seen below:



For the packing stones, they were quarried right next door to the pyramids, no need for such a system.
