The amazing Great Pyramid is supposed to have three tombs, just in case the pharaoh died during the construction - this is seriously what the text books tell us!
The British Museum attributes the Great Pyramid’s “unusual internal design” to “the result of alterations in plan during construction” - a direct reference to the traditional theory that each of the chambers was intended as a tomb, and that therefore the builders must have changed their minds during the course of construction.?’
Is there any evidence to support the still commonly held notion that the Great Pyramid was indeed a tomb, albeit a high technology one. Such a suggestion - that the King’s Chamber (or the Queen’s Chamber for that matter) of the Great Pyramid was a tomb - flies in the face of the evidence we have.
To the surprise of many who have taken the tomb theory at face value. no body, no mummy. nothing at all connected in any remote way with a burial or a tomb, has ever been found inside the Great Pyramid. The Arab historians, who recorded Mamoon’s entry into the Pyramid, stated that there was no evidence of a tomb, and no evidence of grave robbers, since the upper par of the Pyramid had been very effectively sealed off and hidden.
No grave robber would have sealed a tomb after robbing it he would be more interested in a quick getaway! The unavoidable conclusion from this line of reasoning is that the Pyramid was designed to be empty. Furthermore, the idea that the upper chambers of the Great Pyramid were ever designed for a burial is quite inconsistent with the fact that not one Egyptian pharaoh ever had their tomb placed high above ground level. In fact, a study of the numerous other pyramids in Egypt reveals no evidence that any of them were ever used as tombs.
The above information is just comment as no source reference to British Museum statement
The information if True report by British Museum is saying the builders changed their minds on the design of the Pharaohs Tomb. ...and where it should be placed.
It's akin to Snefru building 3 Tomb pyramids for himself.
We are supposed to accept this logic on credit of Egyptology veracity.
A History side which uses reference from figures like Herodotus. ..whose Veracity is very much in question.
IMO.....Snefru cannot build the 3 Large pyramids, plus have mines in the Sinai and military raiding into regional lands to steal cattle and slaves.
The Veracity of the Egyptology Timeline is in question right here,...it does not strengthen
Going into Khufu dynasty, ....it weakens,...as the Sphinx account is very much disconnected to Khufu....as he is repairing it.
No account of Snefru building the Sphinx. ..which includes the 2 Temples before the Sphinx for which the first courses are the huge Limestone blocks removed to create the Sphinx.
The logistic side of a build for say G1 would require area for stone removal,fashioning,transport,and erecting.
The huge pavement blocks shown in my previous link this thread are a project in itself along with leveling the plateau to build G1.
Supposedly....Khufu pulls this off and is building Mastabas and then finishing the Great
Pyramid....and as coment by British Museum, ...he changes his mind 3 times on where he intends His burial tomb to be inside.
For such a great undertaking and famous King.....3 tombs with no Ritual on the walls,...
What could the British Museum be thinking?
Robert Temple suggests Khufu and Family are burried below the Giza plateau.
He went below the Giza plateau and found Niches for coffers and coffers. [www.egyptiandawn.com]
