'Thermal anomalies' found in Khufu pyramid

A new scan of the Khufu pyramid has turned up possible evidence of a hidden chamber within its walls.
Researchers who have been conducting thermal scans of the pyramids as part of a new effort to locate hidden chambers have revealed that they may have discovered something of interest within the largest of the three pyramids at Giza.

According to a statement by Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities, archaeologists have identified "thermal anomalies" within the pyramid's walls - something that could indicate the presence of a hidden room that has been sealed off for thousands of years.

"It’s always interesting to hear new discoveries at Giza, which has a huge significance in the public imagination," said Egyptology lecturer Richard Enmarch from the University of Liverpool.
"It's such a huge structure - there is no end to exotic theories behind it."

Despite the excitement surrounding the find however experts have been keen to emphasize that there could be other explanations for the anomalous readings.

"A void could be one reason, but it's not necessarily the most probable," said Enmarch. "It could also be explained by quality of the stones, whether the stones were cracked and the air flow was able to travel around."

With any luck we'll hear more about this discovery over the coming weeks.

We are lucky Optimist. 1986 A French team discovered density variations in Khufu's pyramid which do not correspond only to known tunnels and the grand gallery. This research apparently fell on deaf ears for almost 20 years. 1993 R Gantenbrink discovered "doors" with copper "handles" in the shafts off the "Queens Chamber" with a remote controlled robot. No apparent attempt was made to examine similar shafts in the "King's Chamber". 19 years pass. 2002 National Geographic team... [More]
