Hello MDaines; you wrote: ”Firstly, what do the three causeway orientations contribute to the overall puzzle? Obviously, they don’t themselves shed a shadow, so would be of no use in confirming the date, unlike the shadow of the pyramids…”

To the contrary, perhaps not a so much a shadow, but rather the causeways cast a bright sliver of sunlight focused along the centerline of length of the covered structure and into the Pyramid Temple [statue of the Solar King?].
