Unlocking the secret beneath Pyramids of Egypt

Written by Barnaby Parsons

The mysteries are still hidden under the pyramids of Egypt. The team was accompanied by Zahi Hawass, earlier antiquities minister of Egypt and famous archaeologist are now testing the scanner on Great Pyramid for Giza on this Thursday, hoping about the modern technology that can also help the unlock ancient secrets that are buried deep below the stone.

This scanner uses the subatomic particles called as muons that helps to examine burial structure for 4,500 year-old, was the initial set up at site for last year and this will even complete the data collection for the month.

“They are running now, and if they manage to detect 3 chambers we know that they exist inside, so they will also continue scans,” said Hawass. He is appointed by Ministry of Antiquities to head entire team which will review entire scan results.

Late during the last year, the thermal scanning helps to identify the major anomaly in pyramid — 3 head-to-head stones at the base that are registered with the higher temperatures as compared to others.

Hawass also has in past downplayed usefulness of the scans on the ancient sites, as said since they never had found anything to be significant. He also has publicly clashed with the Reeves of British Egyptologist Nicolas; the theory which secret with the burial chambers can also be hidden behind walls of tomb of King Tutankhamun was prompted as well as reinforced by the scanning.

However, for more than decade Hawass became the celebrity that was starring in the TV documentaries, finally ruling Antiquities Ministry such the pharaoh. He also was dismissed from their post after the 2011 uprising for Egypt that even toppled long time autocrat of Hosni Mubarak as well as faced charges for corruption, that he was also cleared later.

But again back in field following their appointment, Hawass also appeared to be highly reluctant for criticizing the scanning technologies. He said that they can even be useful when directed by right hands like his own.

You require Egyptologists to supervise, otherwise the mistakes may also be made,” he mentioned. “I really believe that such scans will also assist us to procure the accurate and precise information,” he mentioned by adding this he believed about other burial chamber that stays to be undiscovered inside.
