Egypt to scan pyramids, seeking new discoveries

Advanced imaging may discover Queen Nefertiti’s tomb and finally reveal how the pyramids were built.



Architects and scientists from Egypt, France, Canada and Japan will scan four of Egypt’s ancient pyramids starting next month. The team will use infrared technology, waves, particles and thermal imaging and detectors to map two pyramids at Giza and the two Dahshur pyramids, south of Cairo.

‘This special group will study these pyramids to see whether there are still any hidden chambers or other secrets’ inside them, Minister of Antiquities Mamduh al-Damati announced at a news conference.

‘The idea is to find the solution to the mystery of the pyramids, ‘ said Mehdi Tayoubi, founder of Paris-based HIP Institute that is participating in the project.

Scientist Matthieu Klein of Canada’s Laval University says his team will use infrared technology to scan several meters (yards) beneath the 4, 500 years old pyramid, without touching the structures. “there could be interesting things there, even a few meters deep, two or three blocks deep, ” he said.
