Probably one of the most renown architectures in the entire world is the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. It is considered the oldest of the Seven Wonders and has been researched for hundreds of years by anthropologists and archaeologists.
The Great Pyramid was completed around 2560 BC and has always been surrounded by many mysteries. Many anthropologists and archaeologists that have studied the 455-foot pyramid came to the conclusion that there were no more hidden chambers to be found within its walls.
That said, a new article published in The Nature has announced that an unknown chamber has been discovered in the pyramid. This definitely has caused an enormous stir in the Egyptology community and has people scrambling for answers.
Going back in time, the walls of the Great Pyramid were first entered in the Middle Ages. This was the first time anyone understood the inner workings and construction of the pyramid. Overall these centuries, there are still many things that are unknown about this pyramid. This led to why it has been researched and studied for centuries by those looking for answers revolving around this massive structure.
Archaeologists have long known about the three major chambers within the pyramid. The King’s Chamber, The Queen’s Chamber, and The Grand Gallery. According to the latest article published in Nature, scanning through the rocks has discovered another area. Although archaeologists do not fully understand its size, its parallel to the ground or its angle, they do believe it is substantial and comparable to the Grand Gallery. The Grand Gallery is 154 feet long and 28 feet high.
The team that has been assembled to study this space believe it is approximately 68 feet above ground level. What this chamber was originally used for is still unknown and will probably take many years or even decades to reveal its mystery.
Archaeologists have always dedicated their lives and the patience to understand this amazing ancient culture. This will, once again, entice them to reveal this incredible find! The Nature stated: “There are still many architectural hypotheses to consider”.
The Great Pyramid was originally built as a testament to Pharaoh Khufu who was considered one of the greatest Pharaohs who ever lived. There has never been any doubt that the builders of this Great Pyramid were geniuses that are still leaving modern man trying a figure out the secrets hidden within. It has been over 4,500 years since its construction and archaeologists are still looking for answers regarding its mysteries.
