Hey everyone, as a semi expert on matters, i just thought i might be able to clear up any discrepancies about the dig.
issue 1, the pumping of water
As most of you know, texts from the ancient egyptian world were primarily written on Papayrus, when Papayrus comes into contact with water or
moisture, it disintergrates. So any paper based knowledge would have rotted away.
As for stone tablets containg records that is entirely possible, however, if the heiroglyphics were simply painted on, then the paint which was
mineral based will have rotted away also. So im afraid carved tablets are the only way that data could survive in a flooded chamber.
issue 2, the location
The site referenced in the photos is indeed within a few hundred meters of the sphinx, in the ruined temple complex that previously stood at its
If you examine the photo graph showing a top down view of the hole, you can clearly see a stone "surround" to the rear of the point at which the
team have made entry, this surround could have surported either a wooden staircase or a building such as a mausoleum.
The rumoured well system that provided water for the construction of the temple complex, including the pyramids.
One of the missing tombs of various officials
A storage area for wealth ie gold jewels, important documents.
A water cistern
The fabled hall of "whatever"
Just my thoughts, however, i would suggest that with Dr Hawass being invloved that it certainly is a investigation of note, the reason for the
secrecy, (if indeed they are looking for what is being suggested by this discussion page) is that they do not want to appear fools if the dig turns up
Again just my thoughts.
