I’ve written about the Great Pyramid of Giza plenty of times. One of my articles, 50 facts about the great pyramid of Giza details what an amazing structure the Great Pyramid really is.
Scholars usually agree that the Great Pyramid was commissioned by Khufu, and was built as a tomb over a 10- to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC. Hundreds of thousands of workers (not slaves) were hired to complete the pyramid in what is considered a record-breaking timeline.
It is the oldest and largest, of the pyramids in Egypt, rising at 481 feet (146 meters), and it is the only one of the seven ancient wonders of the world still remaining to this day.
And while we have learned plenty about the great pyramid of Giza in recent years, the structure continues to mystify and surprise experts who still have not completely understood how the pyramid was built.
Now, more mysteries arise.
One amateur historian from England believes he has found evidence to suggest there is a secret chamber inside the structure, and that the body of the Pharaoh is located inside.
The mummified remains of King Cheops, or Khufu, have never been found, and some archaeologists believe they were stolen from the Great Pyramid in the distant past. However, no one has ever found evidence to support claims that the mummy of Khufu was ever located inside the Pyramid.
But amateur Historian Matt Sibson believes this isn’t the case and that the mummified remains of Khufu are still inside the Pyramid.
Mr. Sibson claims to have made the discovery based on the brickwork of the pyramid, after reading a detailed paper on the geology of the stones, reports an article published by the Sun.
Mr. Sibson indicates that triangle marks present on the pyramid are clues that lead to the possibility there is a secret chamber still undiscovered somewhere in the pyramid.
On the west side, it is the most prominent and it looks out of place – so I think it is hiding another entrance to the pyramid,” the Sun quoted Mr. Sibson saying.
“So maybe they made a tomb and took away the staircase at a later date. So, if there is another entrance, then he could be buried in there somewhere. Maybe there is a second set of chambers that could lead to the body of Khufu.”
Not a single mummy has yet been discovered inside the Pyramids, and many authors doubt the theory that the pyramids were erected as giant tombs.
Some authors have proposed controversial theories such as the Great Pyramid of Giza being a massive energy machine.
You can read more about the “Pyramid Energy machine” theory it in my article “10 Reasons Why The Great Pyramid Of Giza May Have Been A Giant Energy Machine“.
