Egyptologists have of course done a wonderful job of figuring out the lives of the Dynastic Egyptians from as far back as about 3100 BC. However, there are certain artifacts, some shown here, that do not fit into their scheme very well.
1. The Colossi of Memnon
2. The unfinished obelisk at Aswan, made of rose granite
It would have weighed 1200 tons had it been finished. So how were they planning on lifting it out of its trench? Slaves?
3. The Serapeum Megaliths
One of the more than 20 stone boxes, underground in the Serapeum at Saqqara. The lid and box are made from one piece of stone, and weigh about 100 tons. Also, the stone was brought from Aswan in many cases, about 500 miles away.
4. The Osirion at Abydos
Built on purpose underground, as were many pre-dynastic structures. The large vertical blocks are Aswan granite; the quarry being more than 100 miles away.
5. Large core drill hole at Karnak
Clearly an ancient work, and the groove created indicates that the drill was boring into the Aswan pink granite at a rate of at least 2 mm per revolution.
6. The Ramesseum broken statue
PART of a broken statue at the Ramesseum near Karnak, again made of Aswan pink granite. When intact, it would have weighed about 1000 tons. The distance from the quarry is about 140 miles.
Here’s my foot on top of the that of the giant statue:
7. The Hall of Records, beneath the Sphinx
And perhaps the most enigmatic of all ancient sculptures, the Sphinx. Where is the Hall of Records? If this stone near the back of the Sphinx is removed, it reveals a ladder that descends into the bedrock of the Giza Plateau:
And at the front, authorities have made a wooden walkway, hiding the entrance to a ramp and possibly chambers under the Sphinx’s paws:

Alexander: These amazing structures alone are enough to challenge the official version of history. But Egypt is home to the biggest of all mysteries: the Great Pyramids.
The same old questions stand to this day: Who built them? How? And more importantly, Why? If you think you already know all the secrets of these marvelous constructions, think again.
This documentary reveals many previously unknown aspects of the Great Pyramids and by the end of it, you will probably realize just how far we are from unlocking their knowledge.
