Were exactly is this clearly stated in their books about 200+ ton blocks... specific cites please from both Mr. Hancock and Mr. Bavaul? Where did they state the 4th dynasty Egyptians moved the hundreds imaginary blocks in Khafre's Valley temple?

You missed the incorrect claim that the smallest blocks in the Valley temple were all greater than 50 tons in Hancock & Bauval (1996). You for one, really should not be giving the impression you're leave something out you are aware of.....

Where do they clearly state the existence of the actual 4-5 blocks and any actual facts about them, like they are all at ground level?

Are you now insinuating that they were aware of the 4-5 200 tons blocks at ground level when they wrote Hancock & Bauval (1996) and excepted that the 4th dynasty ancient Egyptians moved them from the quarry to their present location in the construction site and then didn't bother to mention it in their book for some unknown reason, but instead went on and on about how difficult it was for today's modern technology to move hundred of imaginary ones in Khafre's Valley temple, so how could the ancient 4th dynasty Egyptians do it, someone else must have?

You got to be kidding me......

Nope....

I am still waiting for you to provide the quote from GH to the admission that the claims made about the block sizes in the walls of Khafre's Valley temple were in error. Can you provide this please?
