A Milan Polytechnic professor believes that a throne carved from a meteorite is stored deep within a secret chamber in the Great Pyramid. Since the dagger of King Tut was found in 1922, it has been well documented that the Ancient Egyptians used meteoric iron.
“In these texts, it is said that the pharaoh, before reaching the stars of the north, will have to pass the ‘gates of the sky’ and sit on his ‘throne of iron’,” said Giulio Magli.
Two of the most common theories are at completely opposite ends of the spectrum. The first theory is worldly in nature, suggesting that the void acts as a "construction gap" and a platform for builders to move from one part of the building to another.
However, the second theory suggests that it was the path between the chamber of the King and the chamber of the Queen. This could also suggest something else.
In one way or another, hardly anyone seems to be able to resist the attraction of the Giza Pyramids. Most people fall into one of two categories: a qualified Egyptologist who is determined to unlock the truths of these mysterious structures, or someone who has Egypt on his bucket list to visit Giza in particular.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is without a doubt the biggest reason why Egypt can attract more than five million visitors a year.
Pyramids In Pop
The Pyramids truly captured the imaginations of millions and inspired many artists to use them on a range of platforms in their work. Many films used the Pyramids as the background for some of the most iconic film scenes, including The Mummy, Lost Ark Raiders, and Stargate, to name a few.
There was also the animated musical The Prince of Egypt, which drew heavily from the perspective of the Bible around the time of Ancient Egypt.
Be Our Guest
One of the latest developments has shed new light on Ancient Egypt's overall culture. University College London researchers have evidence that the Egyptians would only enter the pyramids if they had guests.
According to Professor Sidney Colliver, “Recently unearthed papyrus rolls dating from 2400 B.C. confirm that most Egyptians of the time went to the pyramids of Giza once as a kid and thought they were pretty cool, but seldom returned to the majestic tombs unless they had a buddy visiting who had never been there before.”
