What an understatement that is, and one that must affect a lot of ancient Egyptian studies!

About where do you figure the GP was, long/lat, at the time of its construction? Was the drift N-NEish, that sort of thing...

Later - Never mind, I see this was discussed at least as early as 2003. "
Calculation show that over the last 4500 years the Giza Plateau has move northwards between 22.5 to 45 meters and has rotated some 58.32” (arc seconds) from east-to-west, although this rotation may be much lower depending on the tectonics plate model used. In any case, the results show that the azimuth of the Giza pyramids should be adjusted by 58.32 arc minutes eastwards for the epoch 2500 BC.."

Not sure if alarmist is the right word.

"Tectonic?"

At 20-50 or whatever meters of movement, we know that we can't know the GP's location at the time of its construction, as with soo many other ancient structures, like Stonehenge.

WOW.
