AC Congratulates Advisor Dr. Zahi Hawass on Latest Discovery

March 13, 2023

The Great Pyramids have remained a mystery for thousands of years. Experts are even divided on how exactly the pyramids were constructed. Although they have been studied extensively for years, new research methods continue to uncover fascinating details about their interior structure.

After eight years of exploring, Dr. Zahi Hawass, Advisor for the Antiquities Coalition, and his team have uncovered a new tunnel in the Pyramid of Khufu. This work was made possible by recent scanning technology allowing researchers to look at unexplored areas without disrupting  the Pyramid itself. This achievement brings us one step closer to learning more about these significant pieces of history, their construction, and those who built them. 

This discovery also showcases the importance of preserving and protecting cultural heritage sites to allow for the detection of historical objects without causing harm. The Antiquities Coalition congratulates Dr. Hawass on this wonderful revelation and looks forward to future contributions from his team.
