”The only visible remains of Khufu’s causeway consist of blocks of fine Tura limestone lying at the foot of the Giza plateau, 250-70 meters from the upper temple of Khufu. Over the years, a number of scholars have carried out studies attempting to reconstruct the course of this causeway…

A new sewage system was installed at Nazlet el-Semman in the early 1990s; this work was carried out by a British-American consortium, AMBRIC, and monitored by archaeologists from the Giza Pyramids Inspectorate in co-operation with Michael Jones. We recorded the in situ blocks of the causeway that turned up in the course of the trenching for the sewage construction and were able to plot the route of the causeway for its entire length.

We found that the causeway leads off from the upper temple in a straight line. But the causeway turns 32°* to the north of its original direction and from there continues an additional 125 meters to the lower temple…”
