Zahi Hawass has had a poor reputation for a long time. His nickname is "The Pharaoh" because he is dictatorial.

I, too, have heard some of the rumors quoted in this thread.

I exchanged emails with Shaun Whitehead in 2010 after the 2009 robo-expedition. He was kind and happy to chat about the project, but as with most research projects, the results of the projects are first analyzed, described, and peer-reviewed before being published. So it takes time to get the info out there.

Also, unless the project at hand is public in nature (something like the excavation of the Bosnian Hill/Pyramid), the results should not be released without satisfactory analysis and review.

But yeah, Shaun was nice and explained that the results of that particular robo-expedition would be published in the journal, Annales du service des antiquités de l'Égypte. There is a thread somewhere in which I posted the emails and stuff but I don't believe I was the original author, in case you want to find it.

Back in 1993 when he was the Head Inspector for the Giza Plateau he was fired because an artifact was stolen. He was suspected to have been involved but he claimed to have quit instead of fired. Its common knowledge the world over that he is a crook. I honestly can not believe someone would even argue agianst it. I just hope when things settle down over there some new discoveries are made that actually have some historic value and artifacts instead of empty tombs.

I often wonder how much of Egypt's history had been lost over the years to thieves and collectors. It's a frustrating thought.

A great deal but a lot more damage is being done by civilization. They presently have a water table problem on Giza which is threatening a number of monuments there

Yes, and there's the dam. Who knows what was buried forever under that.

If you mean the Aswan they did a good job of rescue archaeology but some sites were probably not found and you can always use more time with most sites. However Egypt has thousands of unexcavated sites and probably several thousand more that haven't even been found yet

Yes, I was referring to Aswan.

I hope you're right about undiscovered sites. There's something historically magical about Egypt, magical in a way no other country is magical.

Ok people... here is the response from Shaun Whitehead....

Hello Peter

Thanks for your interest in the Djedi project. I can understand your frustration! The rather unglamorous truth is that the project has only ever been a part-time one for us; it has no funding or particular support from the SCA, so we have worked on a best-efforts basis up to May 2010, and could generally only visit Egypt during the university vacations. We have all the tools and instruments to look beyond both blocking stones in each shaft. Unfortunately, as we were preparing to return, the problems began in Egypt. Along with all other missions, we had to resubmit our application. We did, around 15 months ago, and we have since been assured that we can go back "when things settle down".

We have not penetrated the second blocking stone, it is not even clear that it is safe or sensible to do so. Almost all of our findings were published in the formal report in ASAE. This is the right way to do things, unlike missions who reported on findings in the media and never published anything properly.

I am currently working on my own interpretation of the Djedi story as well as the history and significance of the shafts. When this is complete it will again be published in the proper way.

I'm afraid that I can't add anything more but I hope this has at least answered a large part of your question.

Regards

Shaun Whitehead


I must admit I am a little disappointed... I am surprised he calls it a "part time" project... this offends me slightly! I was convinced they had already gone through the second slab... but it appears I was wrong.... anyhoo, looks like it's going to be a while before we get any answers!

Unfunded projects are part-time projects, often driven by dedicated individuals.

Even though this appears to be an old thread, I thought I'd do the right thing and post a update to the djedi project: emhotep.net...

It is quite a comprehensive rehash of the work carried out by the Djedi team.

1. Arab Spring

2. The removal of Zahi Hawass

3. The installation of the Muslim Brotherhood

i disagree
it has more to do with

the level of trust
and propaganda in the findings

the nile has been raped....you can whine all you like...the fact is, te egyptians let us dig...we then steal...when they ask for things back...we say f off

giving something back, will go a long way...and toning down the cultic propaganda that accompanies our digs

peace


so hes blaming money??
