They found a town where the people who built the pyramids apparently lived. But they never said they were human, muahahaha!

Shoot, sorry, not used to using Compuserve (on vacation)-- (woops)

Look What They Found Buried In the Sand

A lost ancient Egyptian town that was home to the workmen who built the pyramids has been found buried in the sand by a group of Scottish archaeologists working with the Saqqara Geophysical Survey Project.

Located about 15 miles from Cairo, the town is situated near the necropolis of Saqqara and measures approximately one mile by three-quarters of a mile. There are large temples, some of which are nearly 200 square feet in size, and a number of tombs. The houses are both large and small, indicating the wealthy lived alongside artisans. The Scotsman newspaper described the remarkable discovery as "a 'real' town that will offer a unique insight into Egyptian life unaffected by the glamour of the royal and aristocratic classes." The town most likely evolved from the Old Kingdom, beginning in about 2,500 B.C., through the reign of Cleopatra and beyond the birth of Christ to about 54 A.D.

"I do not believe we will recover any chariots of gold or fabulous pharaoh masks, but in archaeological terms it is stunning; a hitherto undiscovered town, complete, buried beneath the sand," Ian Mathieson, a scientific archaeologist from Edinburgh and the director of the Saqqara Geophysical Survey Project, told The Scotsman. Experts are confident that artifacts of "immeasurable importance" will be found.

There's just one problem: The town is still buried 20 feet deep in the sand. The team, which is comprised of volunteers who spend their annual vacation time digging in the sands of Egypt, doesn't have the money to excavate the lost city. It's been operating since 1990 on a shoestring budget of about $16,000 a year. Compare this to teams from other countries that spend $1.6 million annually on archeological exploration.

Mathieson knows the town is down there thanks to geo-thermal equipment, but he says it's a miracle they even found it. They began looking for it when they saw a one-line reference to it in the papers of Auguste Mariette and Jacques de Morgan, two archaeologists who worked in the area more than 110 years ago. "That was all there was to go on, and we found it. However, it needs resources greater than ours to excavate it," Mathieson told The Scotsman. "But if there's anybody out there with spare cash, we'd be happy to hear from them."

Even without excavating the lost Egyptian city, the Scottish team has solved an enduring mystery that has long puzzled historians. To try to find the town, they hunted for an ancient road that would have been capable of bearing the extremely heavy loads of building materials needed for the pyramids and tombs. They didn't find a road. They found a lake. "The materials were carried by boat, and on the edge of the lake, there was the town," Mathieson explained. One more mystery solved about how the pyramids were built.

Normally I would agree with digging it up, but the present times are not normal.

In other words, first things first. We, humanity are being faced with a New World Order. But this Order's real aim is to deny humanity the knowledge of there past. They are not concerned with finding the truth of ancient pyramid Schemes, but rather, building new ones to honor themselves.

There funding will come when the New World Order is no longer a threat.

Slaves built the pyramids... This lack of quarters of the slaves was a key argument during this thread...nice to see that point go out the window....

If one city was buried under the sand, could there be another cities that is still buried deep under the sand? There could be kingdom's, civilizations and so more buried. Do any of you guys know, how much deep down can be see the contents using methods like geo thermal equipment etc. Like 40 feet max. When was the city discovered?

Of course the pyramids were built BY humans, (which by the way were not slaves. They were teams of payed egyptians who competed to do the most work and such.) anyhow, just because they were built by humans, dosn't mean they weren't supervised by aliens

"There are large temples, some of which are nearly 200 square feet in size,"
That would be 14 ft by 14 - a tolerable bedroom? Whence this rot?

Archaeologists are still scratching the surface of Egypt and the pyramids. I have read a lot on this subject and many people have done years of work to show that there is much more to the pyramids than meets the eye. So they may have found a village, but anything else is pure supposition and speculation where they interpret their finds to try to prove their existing theories because they never want to be seen as wrong. If archaeologists sat down and looked carefully at all the evidence and research that has been done and took an objective view then they may be surprised!
