The Inventory Stele, mentioned earlier, was supposedly written by the priests of the cult of Khufu during the 26th dynasty to praise the deeds of the ancient king. However, it makes no claim whatsoever that Khufu built the Great Pyramid. A very strange omission indeed if Khufu really did build the Pyramid.
Moreover, 4th dynasty inscriptions found at Giza confirm that Khufu was building the mastaba fields for his high officials to the west of the Great Pyramid in ‘year 5’ of his reign. Is it really likely that Khufu, having initiated the largest, most complex and innovative pyramid-building project in Egyptian history, would have allowed any work to be carried out in building mastabas? Can we seriously believe that Khufu would have put his great venture at risk by diverting resources to the building of such mastabas in the fifth year of his reign, bearing in mind that he did not know whether he would live long enough to see the completion of his pyramid? The idea is ludicrous. The inscriptions only make sense if the Great Pyramid was already built before the time of Khufu. (As far as I know, I am the first person to have highlighted this anomaly; my thanks to Mark Lehner for mentioning it in his book ‘The Complete Pyramids’.) [www.eridu.co.uk]
The above information has been presented this forum several times,...and...it gets the
Peer review side jumping mad as they say : )
Also published this forum is info with links revealing the Mesopotamian/Levant influence
On Naqada Era pre Dynastic Egypt.
The Earliest Royal burials at Abydos are either direct Sumer culture burial rite or were adopted.
Alan Alfords Giza adoption theory....or Adaption theory as others opine.
The Holy ground so to speak of the Ancient Giza Plateau finds the Mesopotamian/Levant migrations building the Mastabas.
Alford is correct in pointing out the Year 5 Mastaba field build. ..vs an incomplete
Pyramid which IMO...would create a large logistic problem concerning all management/fabrication aspect of the stone blocks.
Next is the huge pavement blocks around the pyramid and to some degree ...the leveling of the plateau near G1.
Peer review will say Khufu built everything we finally see at the same time....no problem for Khufu...as His Father Snefru built 3 Large pyramids and handed that experience to his son.
Or not : )
