Forum: Egyptologist to Speak on Pyramids
December 13, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
Mark Leher, Ph.D., will present an update on the latest results of the AERA team excavations at the Lost City of the Pyramids and the search for the palace of Khufu, builder of the Great Pyramid. The palace may have stood where the Lost City lies today, and it may have been partially demolished when Khafre, builder of the Second Giza Pyramid, renovated the town. Egyptologist Mark Leher, who leads AERA, a team that has been excavating at Giza for 30 years, has collaborated with the Science Channel to detail the secrets of the Great Pyramid of Giza for viewers, using computer animations to illustrate the ingenious design the pyramid’s engineers left behind.
