    And getting the stones there , with all those hills this is quite an achievement :

    Sarsen Stone

    The giant sarsen stones (which form the outer circle), weigh as much as 50 tons each. To transport them from the Marlborough Downs, roughly 20 miles to the north.
    Blue Stone

    The Blue Stones were from the Prescelly Mountains, located roughly 240 miles away, at the southwestern tip of Wales.

    On this picture one can see how the sfinx in Egypt is clearly being rebuilt in the past , the rest of the body being eroded away by water weathering as explained by Robert shoch

    making it presumably at least dating to the last ice age around 10.500. BC.

    I will just say that the issue of water erosion of the Sphinx is not well accepted in the field.

    It's a very interesting subject.

    My opinion is the pyramids were interstellar transportation devices, I think the book "The Giza Power Plant : Technologies of Ancient Egypt", here...

    https://www.amazon.com/Giza-Power-Pl.../dp/1879181509

    ...is very good but misses the point, the mystery of the expanding king's chamber, which the book supposes was caused by unintentional explosions within the pyramid were likely intentional and part of the way the pyramid operates. The careful alignment of the pyramids and their relation to the stars is telling, and the degree of accuracy is not required for the power plant theory.

    As for moving stone, the outer stones of the Great Pyramid may have been poured into place but the massive rock surrounding the kings chamber was quarried and moved somehow. Much more recently the owner of the "Coral Castle" in Florida claimed to know the secret, the stones were moved by technology that makes them immune to the force of gravity. Considering we don't know how gravity actually works this may be true. The owner, Edward Leedskalnin, certainly succeeded in moving rock with no explanation as to how it was done besides his claims to understand the secrets of the pyramids. Unfortunately if correct it seems he's taken his secret with him to the grave.

    Having had the pleasure to have spent over an hour in the great pyramid, I saw no evidence of it being a power plant. If it was, one would think that some mention of that fact would be found in the ancient historical record. It is not. As for moving the large blocks, they know how it was done, a combination of manpower and fulcrums and the like. People have shown how it can be done today, they just don't show that on Ancient Aliens. In fact, there is a tribe in India who do it now. No alien tech required. It is amazing to me how modern people think ancients were dumb and not capable of amazing feats.

    I hope they start excavating and mapping all the underground tunnel systems on the Giza plateau , I think thats the only way to find out more.
    I hope to go to Giza by the end of the year ,I did a nile cruise in the south recently.
    I work with quit big cranes and heavy loads on factory plants and I must say I find it hard to believe for example one could make, ship and erect the colossi of memnon. ( amenhotep 3 ).using manpower, they could have used elephants as well off course
    It still is quit a mysterie to me at least.
    I read the serapeum is open for visitors so I want to go there as well.

    Ps I visisted about 10 graves in the valley of the kings and they are full of hyrogliphs about the person being buried , as far as I know the great pyramid has no carvings inside which is a bit strange I think ( apart from from a small Khufu painted hyrogliph ), considering its such a large structure and the pharao who built it would want everybody to know.

    The latest:
    http://bigthink.com/robby-berman/a-j...amid-was-built
    http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-...mid-was-021628



    They used water, the Nile, and they built a couloir of water to transport the huge bricks, from the port to the pyramids. Voila; it says in the papyrus.
