However the 'Great Pyramid' is well named, and almost paradoxically empty.
What do you think would have been placed within the pyramid along with Khufu's body?.
For an informed context I give you a very reasoned and pertinent viewpoint given to me by KMT_SESH a while ago, ( I hope you don't mind me quoting you KMT)
, "I must state that we cannot know with any certainty what kind of treasures and grave goods Khufu took with him into his final resting place. We tend to think of all royal tombs in terms of King Tutankhamun and what was found inside his KV62 in 1922, but Tut lived a thousand years after the pyramid age and represents a very different time and state religious system. And to be sure, I'd argue Egypt was a hell of a lot wealthier and more powerful than it was back in Khufu's time.".
I would be very interested to know what you think may once have been deposited in the G.P.
