Chambers detected by ground penetrating radar

 Chambers and passageways detected by sophisticated seismo-
graph and ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment in the last
few years established the accuracy of the plans. Egypt is also suc-
cessfully using sophisticated satellites to identify sites buried
beneath the surface at Giza and other locations. The novel track-
ing system was launched at the begin-ning of 1998 and the location of 27 unexcavated sites in five areas was precisely determined. Nine of those sites are on Luxor's east bank and the others are in Giza, Abu Rawash, Saqqara and Dashur. The printouts of the Giza area show an almost incomprehensible mass of net-like tunnels and chambers crisscrossing the area, intersecting and entwining each other like latticework extending out across the entire plateau.

With the space surveillance project, Egyptologists are able to determine the location of a major site, its probable entrance and the size of chambers before starting excavations. Particular attention is being focused on three secret locations: an area in the desert a few hundred metres west/southwest of the original location of the Black Pyramid, around which is currently being built a massive system of con- crete walls seven metres high covering eight square kilometres; the ancient highway that linked the Luxor temple with Karnak; and the "Way of Horus" across northern Sinai.

An open-minded view of the past allows for an unprejudiced glimpse into the future.

Logic rules.
