Just a tad perplexed by this remark of yours :
"Note this remarkable statement: “It is on the stones which form the arches of the incline leading down to the inner chambers.”
As you are an authority on this fascinating subject I would be grateful for your assistance. I am aware of the subterranean chamber of course, but no others. I assume that they were discovered but now remain secret - how intriguing!
Not so engaging, but equally as interesting, is the reference to arches in the descending passage. Again, I assume that the old Antiquarians entered by Ma'mun's forced entry - no arches there - so just where are these arches? Due to my scant knowledge of ancient Egyptian architecture and, somehow thinking that the ancient Egyptians did not use the arch in their construction, I am further perplexed.
So, to clarify my erroneous assumption that I am reading about an entirely different structure to the Great Pyramid, would you be so kind as to circle the inner chambers (plural) and the arches (plural) on the diagram provided.
