Descending the Cairo Side – More Strangeness in Giza

September 18, 2010

Photos by Ken and Peg Herring

Here are some photos of the Valley Temple near the Sphinx.  Note the strange megalithic stonework and the much newer walls atop.   The finely-dressed stones are likely non-pharaonic in origin and pre-date what we know as “ancient Egypt.”    No hieroglyphics decorate the walls of the “temple,” whose usage and builders are unknown.  Nothing like this structure has been found elsewhere in the country, with the exception of the Osirion at Abydos.

The novel will be available on October 18, give or take a couple of days

    I’ve read about this sort of stonework elsewhere, but I can’t remember where. perhaps it was in Egypt somewhere else. There is supposed to be accuracy so good a piece of paper cannot fit in between two stones for the length of a cut. The stones on top sure do contrast with the fine ones underneath. Says something about later workmen….
