Ancient Iron Mining at Giza Before the Pyramids
The information in this video is, in my opinion, a game changer with regards to our knowledge of Early Dynastic history of Ancient Egypt. In this video I will show you what I believe is possibly the most important anomaly I’ve ever come across at Giza and it’s right outside the Khafre Pyramid.
It’s rarely spoken about and hardly anyone knows about it, but it ties in with my recent series of videos on the Giza Plateau.
Next to the Mortuary Temple of Khafre, there is a huge mass of iron-rich rock, naturally situated within the limestone bedrock. We also see mineralised veins of reddish-brown rock through the causeway. This is because this part of Giza is a major iron deposit.
Furthermore, this iron ore has been worked before the Khafre pyramid was built and the ancient mine goes beneath the Khafre Mortuary Temple, with the floor slabs of the temple forming the roof of the mine.
What was once interpreted as a possible boat pit is, in my opinion, clear evidence of iron mining in early dynastic history, a discovery that means that the Egyptians did indeed have iron at least 2,500 years before the history books say. This also implies they could make iron or even steel tools and this could well explain how the ancient high technology, and how the Ancient Egyptians cut such hard stones like granite and basalt.
But, there is also a conspiracy. In the past 14 years, the ancient mine has been filled in and all records of it have been lost. Thankfully, I include some exclusive pictures in this video.
