Ancient Waterworks Beneath the Pyramid of Djoser

I still hold the belief that the key to solving the mystery of these structures is by understanding their relationship with water.

I’ve made videos in the past how I believe the unfinished pyramid pits of Zawyet El Aryan and Abu Rawash were actually dug to be reservoirs or large wells, to extract water from the bedrock and then to contain it for the surrounding people. These structures I’m sure are pre-4th dynasty in age and are likely to be early dynastic at the latest.


In recent months I made a video that the Great Pyramid was built over a natural spring, a spring that was incorporated into the structure and known today as the grotto. All of the evidence for my claims I put into a video, which I’ve linked below. I believe that this spring held significance at Giza before a pyramid was ever built over it and that it was incorporated into the structure for a reason, whether to help build it, or for something yet unknown.


The Bent Pyramid has a vertical shaft that goes down to an unknown depth and I propose may have once acted like a well, extracting water from the bedrock and delivering it to the chambers, again why? I don’t know.


I hold the belief that every pyramid is built over an ancient, now defunct water source, whether a natural spring or a man-made well that was dug into the limestone bedrock to extract natural groundwater, way before the pyramid builders began their work. Therefore every pyramid is at least a two-stage construction – subterranean structures first and then a later pyramid built over the top.


The Pyramid Complex of Djoser fits perfectly into this hypothesis and in this special extra-long video, I present evidence that the first phase of building at the Pyramid of Djoser was to create an ancient Pre- or 1st Dynasty Ancient Egyptian Waterworks, with two wells, one for drinking water and one for everyday use, a a large canal and more.


It's a speculative hypothesis but in this video, as well as giving an overview of the site, I also present the physical and scientific evidence in support of it. Please watch, subscribe, comment and Like the video.


Special thanks in this video to Robin Morgan for his incredible work creating a 3-dimensional video of the pyramid complex, from which I use a number of still. Watch the full video at: https://youtu.be/e2VholH_kJY
