I've been reading further into the actual inscriptions in the chambers above the "Kings" chamber.... I must admit it is fascinating.... turns out
all the transcriptions found were a mixture of hieratic styles from several different periods of history... but none of these period were the same
period Khufu was purportedly alive.... Furthermore, all the marking contained the same grammatical error, a particular glyph shown as a sieve in the
cartouche of Khufu..... Just so happens, coincidentally, that this same error in translation was represented in the only decent Hieroglyphic reference
material available at the time.... Wilkinson's "Materia Hieroglyphica"...... It goes without saying that no royal inscriber or recorder would ever
make the heinous error of representing his kings name wrong!! Coupled with the fact that the large majority of Egyption builders/stone masons etc had
very little if any linguistic writing skills....
Personally I don't think we even need the results of the tests to prove Vyse forged these marks...
Scott and all others... have a read of this article.... VERY VERY interesting...
Describes the situation and timeline in great detail.....
"How sure can we be of our accusations, a century and a half after the event?
Sure enough. For, as most forgers, Mr. Hill made, on top of all the other embarrassments, one grave mistake: a mistake that no ancient scribe could
have possibly committed.
As it turned out, both source books by which Vyse-Hill were guided (Wilkinson's Materia Hieroglyphica and then de Laborde's Voyage) contained
spelling errors; the unsuspecting team embodied the errors in the pyramid's inscriptions.
Samuel Birch himself pointed out in his report that the hieroglyph for Kh (the first consonant in the name Kh-u-f-u), which is (representing
pictorially a sieve), "appears in Mr. Wilkinson's work without distinction from the solar disk." The Kh hieroglyph had to be employed in all the
cartouches (spelling Khnem-Kh-u-f) which were inscribed in the two lower chambers. But the correct sieve symbol was not employed even once. Instead,
the consonant Kh was represented by the symbol for the Solar Disk: whoever inscribed these cartouches made the same error as Wilkinson had made... .
When Vyse and Hill got hold of de Laborde's book, its sketch only deepened the error. The rock carvings depicted by him included the cartouche
Kh-u-f-u on the right, and Khnum-kh-u-f on the left. In both instances, de Laborde—who admitted to ignorance of hieroglyphics and who made no
attempt to read the symbols—rendered the Kh sign as a void circle
"His depiction thus served to enhance Vyse's and Hill's notion that the crucial cartouche of Kh-u-f-u should be inscribed in the uppermost chamber
with the symbol for the Solar Disk (146a). But in doing so, the inscriber had employed the hieroglyphic symbol and phonetic sound for RA, the supreme
God of Egypt! He had unwittingly spelled out not Khnem-Khuf, but Khnem-Rauf; not Khufu, but Raufu. He had used the name of the great God incorrectly
and in vain; it was blasphemy in ancient Egypt.
It was also an error inconceivable for an Egyptian scribe of the times of the Pharaohs. As monument after monument and inscription after inscription
make clear, the symbol for Ra and the symbol for Kh were always correctly employed—not only in different inscrip-tions, but also in the same
inscription by the same scribe.
And, therefore, the substitution of Ra for Kh was an error that could not have been committed in the time of Khufu, nor of any other ancient Pharaoh.
Only a stranger to hieroglyphics, a stranger to Khufu, and a stranger to the overpowering worship of Ra, could have committed such a grave error.
Added to all the other puzzling or inexplicable aspects of the discovery reported by Vyse, this final mistake establishes conclusively, we believe,
that Vyse and his aides, not the original builders of the Great Pyramid, caused the red-painted markings to be inscribed."
