A very welcome, worthwhile and pretty well constructed hypothesis! Thankyou.

So Thanos's old picture. It could possibly be as late as WWII?

- So the Egyptian Authorities had already had a go at restoring some considerable paving, by that time?
- No original stones remained in place?
- Then later had yet another go at restoration?
- The original bedrock and therefore pavers were considerably higher on the ground and the best place for limestone block cutters was a flat area , where they made a mess of with all sorts of odd (some very small) shapes?
- The Authorities didn't think to level out the mess first? (That doesn't surprise me!)

Maybe ? You could be correct!

I guess I'll have to find that darned chemical and X-ray analysis of the limestone bedrock? (If I can be bothered)
Or, do the Authorities know how to make artificial limestone concrete and keeping it a secret?

I wonder if SCA has kept detailed records of just how much (all) of the modifications they have made all over Egypt?

Thanks. Good food for thought. As promised, I'm intending not to be dogmatic.
Cheers
