    In the Spirit of Sankofa,



    After 4,600 years, we can finally see deep inside Egypt's mysterious pyramids


    You may have wondered what the inside of a pyramid looks like. Not the cavities and passages you see on "The Mummy" — the actual structure of the creation, how it was built to last all these years ...

    Cosmic particles reveal what the inside of ancient Egypt's pyramids look like


    The mystery surrounding the pyramids of Egypt may one day be revealed thanks to a groundbreaking new technology, which shows what the inside of a pyramid looks like for the first time. The group of scientists and archaeologists behind the Scans Pyramids project have revealed their first findings since they began last year to internally map the Bent Pyramid, a 345ft monument located 25 miles south of Cairo in the town of Dashur ...

    Ancient Logbook Documenting Great Pyramid's Construction Unveiled


    A logbook that contains records detailing the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza has been put on public display at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

    The Great Pyramid of Giza was built in honor of the pharaoh Khufu (reign ca. 2551 B.C.-2528 B.C.) and is the largest of the three pyramids constructed on the Giza plateau in Egypt. Considered a "wonder of the world" by ancient writers, the Great Pyramid was 481 feet (146 meters) tall when it was first constructed. Today it stands 455 feet (138 meters) high ...

    Two previously unknown 'cavities' found in Giza's Great Pyramid
    Non-invasive scanning technologies have revealed that the Great Pyramid still has significant secrets, 4,500 years after it was built


    The potential secret chamber in Tutankhamun's tomb may have been ruled a bust, but it looks like there are still secrets in the burial chambers of the pharaohs. The Great Pyramid of Giza, the oldest and largest of the three Giza pyramids -- and, at 4,500 years old the oldest of the world's Seven Wonders -- still has some hidden chambers, new data reveals.

    For 12 months, the ScanPyramids project, under the authority of the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, has been using a range of cutting edge scanning technologies to search for hidden chambers -- and now it's found two, it has reported. Using infrared thermography, muon radiography and 3D reconstruction, the team located the cavities on the north face and northeastern edge ...
