This little side note to a larger story really surprised me.
It would appear that recently, there was a deep carved staircase uncovered near the site of the 4th pyramid.

There's been a whole lot of bizarre stuff coming out of Egyptian archeological news of late. There was a guy in charge, can't quite remember his name, it was like..........Zawahi Awass and he was a frequent guest on C2C with Noory, and he was on Ancient Aliens and such.
But this pyramid has always been known! Vyse and Perring discovered the site in 1830. We have the drawings done by Lepsius in 1842 and 1843. The great Flinders Petrie did some exploratory surveys in 1880 and 1882, and Emile Chassinat, director of the IFAO (French Institute of Oriental Archaeology) in Cairo, carried out excavations and exposed the east side of the pyramid in 1901 and 1902. After that Pierre Lacau, Pierre Montet, Charles Kuentz and a large team excavated the area in 1912 and 1913. The remarkable French archaeologist Fernand Bisson de la Roque worked there from 1922 and his account of his excavations at Abu Rawash (written in French as Abou Roasch) is still a valuable source of information
