"Krupp for example says that the KCS shaft points at the middle star Al Nilam almost precisely for the year 2550 BCE, an accepted date for the building of this pyramid."

This is very ironic. If Krupp speaks correctly, then the timing of the actual construction of the GP most eloquently addresses the 3-part Giza-stellar metaphor, for aligning to the belt's dead centre, Al Nilam(Epsilon Orionis) most precisely in 2550 bc, our "accepted date."

If I wanted to design a Giza complex that mimicked the belt stars at the start of its construction, I might prefer shafts that actually target G123's true centre, Al Nilam, rather than the outer star associated with g1. G2 is central to the proposed 3-part Orion metaphor. Why not underscore the wider 3-part intent, by focusing the shafts at the Belt's central star, as it apparently does?

I would imagine that this point has been raised before, it's so basic.

Orthodox history may be pointing to a better match which, ironically, sustains Bauval's basic idea through a discreet but reasonable shift of focus.
