The Geiger counter is to allow the 'nuclear waste and power plant folks' to get a good night's sleep. Pretty much 'Geigering' all of Egypt wouldn't probably calm them down however. I always suggest that groups that constantly whine about this and that being done - to organize, raise the money and DO it, whether in archaeology, politics, tourism, or social action.

Michel Well you could also raise money; find a university that has connections with Egypt (or a Egyptian university with an antiquities department) and hire them to do a thorough study. I can assure you money talks in Egypt, as long as you are using a real organization with international accreditation, trained scientists (grad students would be fine) they could do the survey with modern ins

One would suspect they would nicely become smaller as they go up but - they do not. We lack data. As far as I know only Khafre's tomb had it tiers measured but I cannot find that document at this time. Nor can I find this being done on any other
