You rock! Thanks for all the information and links, they were very informative. I knew the case for Khufu constructing G1 was pretty weak, but I had no idea it was *THAT* weak!
One of the points I found particularly intriguing was the possibility of some of the fourth dynasty Memphite kings being Hyksos, who then left to construct the city of Jerusalem. Mainly because Hancock talks about the ancient Hebrews and the mysterious 'shamir' in his book 'The Sign and the Seal', an object which could easily cut any stone without generating heat. Not to mention, the Temple Mount features a couple of the largest megalithic stones ever quarried (although the orthodox opinion is that these stones date from the time of Herod, there are others who have argued they are much older.) Because *if* G1, G2, G3 were constructed during the fourth dynasty, then at least this explains why they are so different aesthetically/technologically. (However, that's a pretty big *if* at this point, as I would need to do quite a lot of more research before speculating about any theories...) Anywho, much appreciated and thanks again!
