The 2015 Great Pyramid Survey

In 2015, AERA and the Glen Dash Foundation for Archaeological Research, with the support and permission of the Egyptian Ministry for Antiquities, undertook the most comprehensive survey of the base of the Great Pyramid to date. This new data will hopefully resolve some of the outstanding questions regarding the Great Pyramid’s exact size and orientation, and may provide new insights into the methods the Egyptians used to survey and layout their colossal monuments. More detailed information about the project is available below.
