The Great Pyramid Overhead Slabs of Rock used in the King's Chamber Construction
The Relieving Chambers of the "King's Room" overhead.
Once again we find it interesting to look at a simple set of old drawings from the mid 1800's. This drawing set is from the collection of Smythe from the same period roughly when Edgar and Petrie were in and about the Pyramid area. What we must begin to understand is that much of what we do not know today, was readily available over 100-150 years ago. The amazing part is simple truths discovered many years ago remain unknown to the public. Meanwhile, so-called well meaning scientists make up lots of myth and fantasy that leads us further from the truth.
Look at this nice drawing from long ago. What we see is a profile of the five relieving chambers. Notice the person who created the drawings inserted much detail. They make an apparent reference to the large overhead slabs being rough on one side, and smooth on the other.
Notice the overhead slabs. As one can imagine the internal side of the rest of the room/box is likely rough as well. There is no reason
to think anything other than the edges were finished. As we will
soon see from our drawing set the rocks were left in this form on purpose. See our drawing sets for the overhead plates and relieving chamber slabs.
