Hello Dune,

You wrote, ‘So there you have it, you have misunderstood Petries word as meaning the whole floor is raised when he ment just that 0.8 difference’.

I strongly disagree.

The KC has two heights; one from the base of its walls*, the other from the surface of the floor.
The surface of its floor is above the base of its walls approx. 3" to 5" (the floor being tilted by approx. 2”).

At its doorway the surface of its floor is above the base of its walls 4.3”.

The passage between the KC and the Antechamber has two heights; one from the base of its walls* the other from the surface of its floor.
The surface of its floor is above the base of its walls from 3.3" to 3.5".

The Antechamber has two heights; one from the base of its walls*, the other from the surface of its floor.
The surface of its floor is above the base of its walls from 3.5” to 4.4”.

The passage between the Antechamber and the Great Step has two heights; one from the base of its walls* the other from the surface of its floor.
The surface of its floor is above the base of its walls from 4.1" to 5.2".

At its face and along the line of Petrie’s measurements the surface of the Great Step is 5.2” above the base of the KC’s walls*

* taken as being at the same level as the base of the KC’s wall at the Chamber’s doorway

These are the facts, Dune; make of them what you will.

As for ‘raised floor’, I cannot think of a more appropriate term for a floor inserted between the walls of a room.
If you or anybody else knows of one, then please do let me know.

Lastly, it is worth noting that the state of the Queen’s Chamber’s floor suggests to some that this chamber was intended to have a floor inserted between its walls.

p.s.

Here is something else to consider.
It has been suggested seriously that the Chamber floor was raised to make the height of the Chamber – measured from the surface of the floor – the same as the half-diagonal length of the KC floor.

The half-diagonal length of the KC floor is 11.18rc/230.67”, which raises the floor surface 0.249rc/5.13”.
The maths works very well.

So many questions.
So few answers - and not one of them mine.
