There really aren’t any good ways to determine when stone structures were built by examining the structures themselves – it is necessary to rely on organic material such as human remains found inside or near the structures.
Nevertheless, if it is indeed the case that they stole a cartouche from a small compartment within the pyramid, this is a despicable act that should have big consequences.
But we turn our attention now to another controversy that has emerged out of this dispute.
It’s a reasonable methodology, but it relies on the assumption that the pyramids were built at the same time as the village that surrounded them.
However, what if the three large pyramids were built An ostrich egg was found in a tomb near Aswan that shows 3 triangular structures side by side.
Not only is the mortar from nearer the top older, but by as much as 1000 years.
So, not only was it built from the top down, it took 1000 years to do it, as well.
It’s fascinating to look at this 7,000-year-old object and try to come up with alternate theories for what the image is showing.
The basic evidence for this comes from carbon dating the mortar used on the Great Pyramid.
They refer to evidence presented by Colonel Howard Vyse in 1837, in which an inscription was found in a small room bearing Khufu’s name.
