VALID research or vandalism? Egyptian authorities are in uproar after two German students scraped away some ancient writing to "prove" the Great Pyramids are 20,000 years old...
The two students from Dresden University recently took matters into their own hands: With Egypt's political turmoil distracting security forces, the pair conspired to sample the red paint and smuggle the pigment out of Egypt.
They have since asserted the fragments support arguments that the construction of date of the Pyramids was much older than Khufu's reign. - Source

Scott CreightonCuriously this c.20,000 age is supported by my own recent research.
There were Ancient Egyptians... before that there were just local tribes ....

I dont condone vandalism, however I do condone responsible research that leads to an overall expansion of knowledge.
If this is confirmed 100 percent legit than why throw such a tuss. I seems very logical to test the paint, as long as things are not destroy beyond repair. And as far as my understanding of the process these kinds of test dont require a large sample.
I hope this can be confirmed.
The vandalism itself immediately discredits any legitimacy these STUDENTS might have had to begin with.
