Egypts Cave Underworld Under Investigation Egyptian archaeological team move in to find answers

Egypts leading Egyptologist, Dr Zahi Hawass, has revealed that an excavation team under his charge are investigating an ancient tomb at the centre of claims regarding the alleged discovery of a cave underworld beneath the Pyramids of Giza.

In August British writer and explorer Andrew Collins announced that he had rediscovered the entrance to a previously unexplored cave system, entered via a mysterious tomb several hundred meters west of the Great Pyramid.

The cave entrance was found following clues left in the 200-year-old memoirs of British diplomat and explorer Henry Salt, who recorded how in 1817 he and Italian explorer Giovanni Caviglia had investigated cave catacombs at Giza for a distance of several hundred yards before coming across a spacious chamber.

This chamber linked to three others of equal size, from which went various labyrinthine passages, one of which the Italian later explored for a distance of 300 feet further.

Dr Hawass, Secretary General for Egypts Supreme Council of Antiquities, has now confirmed that he has ordered an all-Egyptian team to explore the tomb at the centre of the controversy.

We are clearing this system now, and it is a Late Period catacomb, like many others around Egypt, he stated this week. There is no mystery about it, and there is no connection with esoteric topics. We will publish our results as part of our normal process.

While applauding Dr Hawasss new interest in the site, Collins remains sceptical of his motives. We knew in August that he had started clearing the tomb, he said. The excavations began almost immediately after knowledge of the cave discovery hit the internet.

Collins is also unconvinced by Hawasss explanation of what he calls the catacomb. Does his use of the term system now suggest that he has found and entered the caves, which he previously denied even existed? he asks. My colleagues and I have examined photographic evidence of dynastic catacombs throughout Egypt, and these all appear to be carved by human hands.

Those at Giza are natural, and penetrate the bedrock for many hundreds of metres, perhaps following the course of local geological faulting.

Although Dr Hawass suggests there is no mystery surrounding the catacomb, Collins suspects that the caves extend beneath the Second Pyramid, where ancient tradition puts the legendary tomb of Tomb of Hermes, Egypts legendary founder.

This has never been found, he added, So perhaps it is still there, awaiting discovery, somewhere close to where Salt and Caviglia reached nearly 200 years ago.

He has also released a YouTube video showing his exploration of the caves in 2008.
