In the 1980s several ancient Egyptian monuments, including the Great Pyramid, were radiocarbon dated.11 Radiocarbon dating cannot be applied to stone, but it can be used to date fragments of organic material, such as wood and charcoal, ... The 15 samples from the Great Pyramid gave radiocarbon dates ranging from 2853 to 3809 BC, the average date being 3029 BC, ...However, radiocarbon dating is subject to several possible sources of error... Another way of trying to date ancient monuments is archeoastronomy – the investigation of possible astronomical alignments in the past... , the Great Pyramid could have been built around 3400 BC or 2170 BC...
Ah the old 'Egyptologists' have gotten it all wrong and here is why gambit.
All three Giza pyramids were allegedly built as grandiose tombs, yet none of them was found to contain the body of its presumed builder. According to one account, in 820 AD, Arab workmen, under the direction of Calif Al Mamun of Baghdad, tunnelled into the Great Pyramid (the entrance being concealed by a hinged stone), hacked their way around the granite plugs blocking access to the ascending passage (and which appear to have been built in from the start), and finally reached the ‘King’s’ Chamber; it was completely bare except for a ‘sarcophagus’, which was lidless, uninscribed, and empty. However, since access to the King’s Chamber can also be gained via the torturous ‘well shaft’, tomb theorists can still argue that Khufu’s body and all the objects ‘buried’ with him were removed by thieves at a much earlier date. It should be borne in mind, though, that no Egyptian pyramid has ever been found to contain the body of its presumed royal builder; even sealed sarcophagi in pyramid chambers that have never been entered by tomb robbers have been found to be empty.

Sorry about that, yup I meant "proto".
In relation to the great pyramids 'fuzzy' = less than a thousand years.
