Hi Tusk,

I know it is possible, I'm asking for any form of evidence the IV Dynasty or earlier Ancient Egyptians were able to preform this or similar experiments? Based on a spherical model and by Ancient Egyptians fractional (therefore rational numbers) calculations G1 is placed exactly 1/12 the distance of the mean earth circumference from the Equator. WGS84 and oblate spheroids are our methods and really unknown to the Ancient Egyptians. That WGS84 and oblate spheroids relate to Ancient Egypt are actually our assumptions projected on them, just as we do with pi and phi sqrt2 and 3, All in lieu of using their demonstrated methods from the papyri is little wonder after 400 years everyone is still stumbling around in the dark.
