The point is that evidence has been found to completely disprove Scott Creighton's various claims concerning allegations that cartouche names of Khufu in the Great Pyramid were forged.

QuoteThe simple truth of the situation is that in 1837 there was, in fact, sufficient published information already in the public domain that could have allowed Vyse to obtain the knowledge that would then have compelled him to place both cartouches within the ’Vyse Chambers’ of the Great Pyramid, albeit for erroneous reasons. And all of the necessary books may well have been easily accessible to

Hi Barbelo, I read somewhere a while back that there are possibly several different definitions of the Great Year, some of which have become confused, or interchangeable, with others. This - The Great Year (Nicholas Campion) - might be of some help (reviewed here).

QuoteThe object above, which is made of metal and appears to be a roughly manufactured hook of some sort, was discovered inside the Great Pyramid of Giza behind a sealed cavity in the lower chamber of the building. It is The Key to the Great Pyramid of Giza. It's a pesesh-kef (psS kf, "mouth-opener.") See ; also GRANT BEY AND THE MISSING PYRAMID RELIC; and here.
