Archeologists Discover a Strange Underground L-Shaped Structure Near the Giza Pyramids

A team of international archeologists has discovered a strange underground structure near the Giza Pyramids in Egypt. The structure was spotted while experts examined the area using electrical resistivity tomography and ground-penetrating radar.

According to the study published in the Archaeological Prospection journal, the structure is situated in Western Cemetery, which contains burials of the royal family and high-ranked officials. It has an “L” shape and is filled with sand, which means it was “backfilled after it was constructed.”

“It may have been an entrance to the deeper structure. Its depth is of up to 2 m, measured from the ground surface,” it says in the study.

The Western Cemetery site hasn’t been explored extensively due to the lack of “superstructures”. Most burials are marked with simple rectangular stones or small structures made of mud bricks.

“There are no significant remains above ground in this area, but is there really nothing below the ground? No underground investigations have previously been carried out,” the study concludes.

The archeologists determined that the mysterious structure isn’t a natural occurrence because “the shape is too sharp,” according to Motoyuki Sato, a professor at Japan’s Tohoku University and one of the authors of the study. Sato told Live Science that there are plans to excavate the area so that they can learn more about it.
