                     THE FIRST FEW PICS ARE FROM A BUILDING SITUATED CLOSE TO THE GREAT PYRAMID CAUSEWAY. ENTRY THROUGH THE

                                                           FLOOR HAD OPENED INTO SUB LEVEL CHAMBERS YIELDING MANY ARTIFACTS.   

               

 

THE LEVELS OF STONEWORK AND MUD BRICK TOLD THEIR OWN STORY. 

 

 

    THE FOLLOWING PICS SHOW MANY OF THE SMALL ARTIFACTS RECOVERED FROM BENEATH HOUSES IN THE VILLAGE. RECOVERED ITEMS ARE INEVITABLY FROM

    MORE RECENT HISTORICAL PAST AS THE REALLY MEATY ARCHAEOLOGY CAN BE UP TO 30 METERS BELOW GROUND; BEYOND THE ABILITY OF LOCALS TO REACH.

 

 

NOTE THE SCRIBE'S INKWELL, BUT WE HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THE STONE CLAW OBJECT IS, OR HOW IT WAS FORMED.

 

 

  IT WOULD BE NICE IF SOMEONE CAME BACK TO US ON THE INDEX PAGE MESSAGE BOARD TO IDENTIFY THIS COIN AND SAY IF IT WAS GENUINE OR NOT?

 

 

SURE, JUST A STONE...BUT IT HAD BEEN DELIBERATELY STORED WITH OTHER RECOGNISABLE ARTIFACTS AS IN THESE PICS ?

 

 

THERE WERE PIECES OF VARIED GRANITES, ALABASTER, ANCIENT CONCRETE, SAND/LIMESTONE, NATURAL & SEMI PRECIOUS STONES

 

 

THIS TINY POT OF ABOUT 2 INCHES - VERY THIN, BUT IMMENSELY STRONG LIKE AN EGG. WE HAVE NO IDEA OF THE SMALL DISH?

 

 

       THE NEXT TWO PICS ARE A LITTLE DIFFERENT.

 

       WE WERE TAKEN BLIND TO A LOCATION NOT FAR FROM THE LINE OF THE GP CAUSEWAY... BUT EXTENDED ON INTO THE VILLAGE. UNDOUBTEDLY, DEEP

       BELOW GROUND HERE THERE IS VERY IMPORTANT ARCHAEOLOGY.

 

       WE HAD LEARNED OF A DEEP EXCAVATION WHICH WAS IN PROGRESS AND WE THOUGHT WE MAY BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE IT, EVEN IF WE

       HAD TO BE BLINDFOLDED TO BE TAKEN THERE. WE WERE TAKEN TO A HOUSE WHERE THERE WAS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO CONVINCE US THAT WE WERE

       LIKELY NEXT DOOR TO WHERE AN EXCAVATION WAS TAKING PLACE.A COUPLE OF YEARS LATER WE WERE ABLE TO VERIFY THIS THROUGH A TRUSTED

       THIRD PARTY.

 

       WE WERE TOLD THAT TUNNELLING CONTINUED BUT THAT A VERY LONG LINTEL HAD JUST BEEN REVEALED AND WAS COVERED IN HEIROGLYPHICS.

       A COUPLE OF PIECES OF THE STONE FROM THE LINTEL WERE BROUGHT FOR US TO SEE - AND THESE ARE SHOWN BELOW. WE KNOW THE VILLAGERS ARE

       BECOMING MORE AND MORE AWARE OF THE PRICELESS BOUNTY THAT IS DEEP BENEATH THEIR HOUSES, AND AS LONG AS THE CURRENT ATTITUDE OF

       ZAHI HAWASS AND THE AUTHORITIES CONTINUES TOWARDS THEM, THE ONLY WAY THESE TREASURES ARE GOING TO SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY, IS

       ILLEGALLY, DANGEROUSLY, AND INTO THE POCKLETS OF PRIVATE COLLECTORS!

 

       CAN YOU READ THE HEIROGLYPHICS ON THEM ?  WE WILL SUPPLY THE ORIGINAL HIGH DEFINITION PICS TO ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO STUDY

       THEM CLOSER.                                  PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE INDEX PAGE MESSAGE BOARD.
