Ancient history

At http://popular-archaeology.com/issue/winter-2018/article/cheops-pyramid-… … is there an iron throne in the newly discovered chamber of Cheops pyramid? This refers to the discovery by Japanese researchers of a large void at least 30m in length within the pyramid. Speculation is mounting that an iron throne may exist in the newly discovered chamber – or roof space. A throne of Cheops mother, Hetepheres, has been found – made of cedar wood covered in sheets of gold and faience. Cheops chair could also be made of cedar of wood – and covered in sheet iron (hammered meteorite iron). This material had fallen from the sky and may have been used to transport the dead pharaoh into the sky.

Meanwhile, archaeologists at Tel Edfu, have uncovered a dynasty 5 administrative complex. The report focusses on Djedkhare Isesi who commissioned an expedition to southern Sinai in search for copper and an expedition to the Land of Punt.
