Giza Pyramids News Update and Shutting Down

"Security staff from the Pyramid site in Giza, however, announced that starting 15 June, the iconic pyramid complex would be shut down."

The pyramids are being closed due to security concerns. Nothing has been okay since the revolution and there are protests everywhere, including the blocking of the iconic pyramid complex at Giza.

So starting next week they will be closed to the public indefinitely.

This comes on the heels of a magnificent discovery inside the Great Pyramid of "graffiti" said to "be ancient graffiti tags left by a worker or symbols of religious significance."

"A robot with a camera went down a mysterious passage only eight inches wide and found some hieroglyphs daubed with red paint onto the floor of a secret chamber at the end of the tunnel.

Egyptologist Luca Miatello has deciphered the writing and says they're engineering marks. They make the number 121, which corresponds to the length in cubits of the so-called Queen's Chamber of the pyramid."


Hmmm...very interesting. Robots are again crawling all over the inside of The Great Pyramid the very week they are announcing a shut down.

Also, more woes for The Pharaoh:

It's being reported that "Staff members who had worked for the government anywhere from five to thirty years were demanding permanent contracts and decent working conditions. They also sought the removal of Zahi Hawass."

We'll keep you updated but something tells us Zahi Hawass isn't going anywhere!
