Sections of mudbrick wall that would have protected the Sphinx from desert winds have been uncovered.
The discovery was made by a team of Egyptian archaeologists who were carrying out routine excavations near the valley temple of the Fourth Dynasty King Khafre.
Large sections of mudbrick walls have emerged from the sands of the Giza plateau on which the Sphinx and the three great pyramids stand, Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities announced on Tuesday.
