The largest and oldest of the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Pyramid of Khufu was built over 4,500 years ago. Even now, scientists and archaeologists are still trying to unravel its mysteries.
A new discovery suggests there could be two previously unknown chambers hidden inside the Great Pyramid.
According to the team #ScanPyramids who conducted the investigation, they have confirmed “the existence of a ‘void’ hidden behind the North Face, that could have the form of at least one corridor going inside the Great Pyramid.”
However, the team emphasizes that more research is needed to form definitive conclusions about the space.
This discovery is a result of muon radiography, a method of scanning the pyramid’s façade for clues about what’s inside. It works like an X-ray, where particles pass through our bodies to take an image of our skeleton.
While there are still many questions to be answered, you can visit the Pyramids of Giza and more as soon as next spring with Insight Vacation’s Luxury Gold tour, “Elegance of the Pharaohs.” It even includes a 5-day river cruise down the Nile.
