Secret of the Great Pyramid
The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of all time. Egyptologists simply do not know how ancient builders raised thousands of two-ton blocks to the top of a 480-foot pyramid. Beginning in 2003, Dr. Bob Brier, Senior Research Fellow, Long Island University/LIU Post, worked with French architect Jean Pierre Houdin to find evidence for a theory—that hidden inside the pyramid is a mile-long ramp, still waiting to be discovered, which was used to build the structure to such great heights. In this lecture, Dr. Brier discusses recent findings that offer support for this theory. Sponsored by the Philadelphia Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America. Free admission.
