Giza pyramid chamber unveiled
Egypt’s antiquities authorities on Thursday unveiled a newly discovered sealed-off chamber inside one of the Great Pyramids at Giza, just outside of Cairo, that dates back some 4,500 years ago.
The corridor — on the northern side of the Pyramid of Khufu — was discovered using modern scanning technology. It measures nearly 30 feet long and more than 6 feet wide, perched above the main entrance of the pyramid.
Archaeologists do not know the function of the chamber, which is not accessible from the outside.
Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass and Tourism Minister Ahmed Issa, announced the discovery Thursday. The Scan Pyramids project, an international program that uses scans to look at unexplored sections of the ancient structure, was credited for the find.
