I was trying to somehow date, or at least establish my Pyramid- building order just from pics....but it's probably an impossible task.
I'd suggest Radio-Carbon Dating of multiple locations, on all Pyramids, BUT, we need much more precise results than the usual plus-or-minus 150 yrs. time-frame. (My meaning is an organized, thorough, and esp. accurate study of the mortar in all Pyramids.)
Last statement: You may be right here....I think the 'Pyramid-building Era' was at least 200 yrs. long, and probably longer.
I firmly believe ALL Khufu Cartouches we now know of are authentic and attested.....The forgery idea is simply over-speculated Fringe Fantasy, and always will be. JE says he now believes ONLY the one Glyph found in the Queens C air-shaft is authentic, and all others in the GP are not....but, as usual, he offers NO evidence to support, etc.
Campbell's Chamber roof blocks are Tura Limestone until proven otherwise.
THE Cartouche in Campbell's Chamber IS Authentic, as are ALL other RC's Glyphs, until proven otherwise.
