Two ‘secret rooms’ found within Great Pyramid
Two previously-unknown cavities have been identified within the walls of Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza.
The discovery was made through a collaborative project known as ‘Scan Pyramids’ which, by combining the efforts of multiple universities and scientific institutes, aims to unravel the secrets of these ancient structures by applying state-of-the-art scanning and 3D modelling techniques.
This week’s results, which were obtained using a method known as muography, have revealed the presence of two mysterious voids within the Great Pyramid – one on its northeastern edge and another behind its descending corridor.
It isn’t clear yet what lies within these empty spaces however the possibility exists that they could be secret chambers that have managed to remain undiscovered for thousands of years.
