The Age of the Great Sphinx at Giza

Giza Before the Fourth Dynasty is paper by Geologist Colin Reader, originally published in the Journal of the Ancient Chronology Forum 9 in 2002, which has been published on the Hall of Ma'at website. Reader explores both the case for the attribution of the Sphinx to Khafre and some of the alternatives, including his own theory which he hopes goes further than any other in reconciling the available evidence. This is a three-year-old article, but I have added it here because it may not have been accessible to people who do not have access to an academic library, and it is still very relevant to discussions about the age of the Sphinx.
