From time immemorial people have feared the
dead taking revenge once their burial chambers
had been disturbed.
According to morals of any society or doctrines
of any religion, the dead must not be disturbed
However, moral principles are always disregarded
if they stand in the way of science.
An insatiable desire to know everything prevails
over the warnings and precautions.
Pyramids have always fascinated people because
they are the wonders of the ancient world
that exist today.
Humans have always been trying to quench their
curiosity of what lies inside those ancient

The great pyramid of Giza, built more than
3,000 years ago out of more than two million
blocks of stone, is the biggest ancient pyramid
in the world and today stands at 450 feet
We only have access to a few chambers inside
it, such as the great gallery and the king’s
and queen’s chambers.
The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the
Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops)
is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids
in the Giza pyramid complex bordering what
is now El Giza, Egypt.
It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the
Ancient World, and the only one to remain

of which are tomb chambers, ante-rooms, chambers,
ventilation shafts and access tunnels.
There are three main chambers: The King's
Chamber, the Queen's Chamber and the Grand
The King's Chamber has two shafts connected
to outside, but two tunnels from the Queen's
Chamber deep inside the widest part of the

Also been helped by robots, a chamber in the
Great Pyramid not accessible by humans, was
four years ago explored.
A strange, tiny tunnel leads from the queen’s
chamber to another blocked-off area.
This has been known about since 2002 when
a robot was used to drill through a stone
“door” and film what was behind it.
But the images didn’t show much.
In 2011, a more flexible device was sent in
and captured mysterious red hieroglyphs, which
hadn’t been seen by human eyes for thousands
In 1993 a robot discovered a small door set
with metal pins, the first time any metal
had been found inside the pyramid, igniting
speculation that the pins were keys or door
In 2002 a different robot filmed a small chamber
blocked by a stone after managing to drill
through the first stone block.
The latest robot, built by engineer Rob Richardson
from the University of Leeds, has a bendy
camera that can see around corners.
The images revealed could be numbers or graffiti
which were common in Giza at the time of the
Enter the Great Pyramid on the north face,

Even this high-tech expedition provided just
a tantalizing glimpse of what is in this long-lost
chamber of the Great Pyramid.
Until the scientific evidence can enlighten
us, we will remain in the dark about what
other rooms might or might not be inside the
pyramids of Egypt.
Indeed, it’s been part of our cultural relationship
with the pyramids for hundreds of years.
