I spent a whole morning running, jumping, and
climbing the Saqqara Necropolis grounds. I was
surprised that there were no erosion patterns as
definite as those found on the Giza Necropolis.
Infact, no wind-cut fissures or Tafoni's were
present and the most of erosion present was
the crumbling of stone into sand as if the
Saqqara edifices were made out of sandstone.
There were natural deep fissures on the Saqqara
cliff or escarpment that look exactly like those found
on the Sphinx body and the southern rock knoll.

But to my surprise I did find one deep feasure and
a few Tafoni's in one area of the Saqqara Necropolis,
and that was at the Unas Pyramid dated 5th dynasty.
It contained the only megalithic stones such as found
in Giza, which was in contrast to the smaller dry wall
stones found in the stone constructions of the
Saqqara Necropolis. Infact the Unas Pyramid is a
mound of rubble, except for the bottom course that
is made of megalthic core and casing stone. The deep
feasures and Tafoni's are only found on the megalithic
casing stones of Unas and nowhere else. This could
mean that the bottom course of the Unas Pyramid
was an ancient megalithic structure that was built over
by the Pharaoh Unas in the 5th Dynasty. So the only
megalithic structure found in the Saqqara Necropolis
is the bottom course of the Pyramid Unas which
contains the only deep feasures and Tafoni erosions
in this Necropolis. But even the Tafonis don't seem
as ancient as those found in Giza.

My conclusion is that the Saqqara Necropolis has nothing
in common with Giza. And that the Giza erosion patterns
are much more ancient in weathering than those of Saqqara.
The megalithic structure of Giza is at least 10 times larger
than that of Saqqara,..meaning its structure shows that it
was built by a different people or civilization. More ancient
due to geological observations:

-------------------------------------------------

Natural fissures on escarpment similiar to Sphinx. 3rd dynasty
and old kingdom structures do not contain erosion patterns,
neither deep fissures or Tafonis:



No megalithic building stones,..dry wall method of unhewn
stones with Tora Casing stone. The only megalithic stones
are found at the Unas Pyramid



The only megalithic stones which is the first course of the Unas
Pyramid shows deep fissures such as the Great Pyramid casing
stone. This is the only megalithic spot and contains the only
tafoni deep fissure erosion patterns to be found in the Saqqara
Necropolis:




Geology will prove that giza is not only older than Saqqara but
already ancient in predynastic times.
