Hello cladking; would you please provide links to substantiate the following claims?

    ”there is a canal right on site at the base of G1”

    ”The canal at G1 was called the "NNE trench" by Petrie”

    ”there are others associated with great pyramids including G2”

    ”there is a tombs right on site at Giza of the "Overseer of Canals"”
