Pyramids' Cave World Discovered At Giza

PR Log

Be warned - there's the inevitable Indiana Jones reference.

Huge natural cave world full of bats has been found close to the Great Pyramid on Giza's famous plateau, leading archaeologists now confirm.

A vast natural cave system has been discovered beneath the shadow of the Great Pyramid, and now it’s official.

That is the verdict of world renowned Egyptologist Dr Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, who explored this mysterious underworld of passages and chambers in US television show “Chasing Mummies” this week, having previously dismissed its discovery by a British explorer.

The History Channel series showed dramatic scenes of Dr Hawass and his team – which included consulting archaeologist Dr David Cheetham – advancing through an extraordinary, bat-infested cave realm in scenes that would not have looked out of place in an Indiana Jones movie.
