>Yes good luck on your research. Yes I'm quite familiar with the plateau I visited there three times over the years, once as an archaeologist but I concentrated on G3 which is >my favourite in two other trips I spent time going around the perimeter and to the nearby areas plus a touristy trip inside G1.

I have never been there, though still consider going. I wouldn't worry about cluttering up a thread. We all do it. As for any of my ideas, it's basically speculation. There is no direct evidence of a Funicular system. There are only interesting associations. Square ended holes in the ground, is just that, a square oblong hole. I just enjoy the the hunt, and don't claim to be an expert. It's a hobby.
Even if I had a time machine, and went back in time and viewed how the Pyramids were built. Upon my return, everyone would argue it wasn't done that way. I'm not nearly as wrapped up in all of this, as it seems... a bit pointless. Many individuals act as though they are out planting flags into the ground, and then protect their territory. Step back a bit, laugh at it, and then if wish, try and find evidence to prove them wrong. It seems to be more of a debate, than adding to Egyptology. I do admit, I enjoy pushing over the apple cart at times.
Cladking is fine. I use to argue with him. I think I called him every name there is, though I consider him a friend and value his conversations. In saying that...it doesn't mean I agree with everything he says. Good Luck, and enjoy!
Keep up the good work.
