For example, it is reported by Abu Szalt, a medieval Arab chronicler from Spain, that when the Caliph Ma'amoun entered the Great Pyramid for the first time in the 9th century and made his way to sarcophagus in the King's Chamber, 'the lid was forced opened, but nothing was discovered excepting some bones completely decayed by time.'.In 1818, when Belzoni entered the Second Pyramid (Khafre), he found some bones inside the sarcophagus which apparently turned out to be from a bull .Nevertheless, if it is indeed the case that they stole a cartouche from a small compartment within the pyramid, this is a despicable act that should have big consequences.But we turn our attention now to another controversy that has emerged out of this dispute.German archaeologists are currently embroiled in a dispute with Egypt’s antiquities ministry after they allegedly removed samples from the Great Pyramid and subsequently announced that the construction date of the Great Pyramid is wrong .
The iron plate was eventually donated to the British Museum along with an affidavit from Hill and also from others who had been present during the find. Hill that it was contemporaneous with the pyramid, Lucas later changed his mind when he realized that the iron was not from meteoritic origin. Jones of Imperial College London, asked the British Museum for a small sample of the iron plate so that they could conduct a full scientific examination.How much is the question though at best as far as I can see there is nothing to point to 10,000BC.To answer your question from your previous post, the way around RCD is to accept the idea given the dates are derived from the exterior and short lived materials that they may not be indicative of the builders but rather later restorers.Current consensus among Egyptologists is that the head of the Great Sphinx is that of Khafre.Along with these major monuments are a number of smaller satellite edifices, known as "queens" pyramids, causeways and valley pyramids.
