Egypt: New Great Pyramid voids pinpointed as drill could expose ‘exactly what’s inside’
The 4,500-year-old monument is believed to have been constructed for the Pharaoh Khufu over two decades and remains as the oldest and largest of the three ancient pyramids on the Giza Plateau. Estimated to weigh approximately six million tonnes, the structure is said to have been made using 2.3 million blocks of limestone, some weighing as much as 80 tonnes. There have been numerous theories about how the Great Pyramid was built, but most experts agree it was by moving huge stones from a nearby quarry and dragging and lifting them into place.
