The Tomb of Khentkawas may not be the most breathtaking ancient monument on the Giza Plateau, but this Old Kingdom ruin is certainly one of the most prominent. Today it is very much unloved and off limits to tourists, which for me is a real shame because I think it may still have a secret hiding in plain sight.
For the first half of this video, I take a close look at the mysterious and incomplete history of Tomb of Khentkawas, before highlighting a curious anomaly I’ve identified on the 2006 laser scanning survey results, which I think could be a concealed entrance into a secret hidden chamber or corridor, unopened for 4,500 years.
