Minkaure Temple Blocks

I originally posted this on my facebook “Revealing Egypt’s Lost Wisdom” page and wanted to put it here also. I will putting up something extra special on January 1, so look forward to the fun article.


It may not seem like much on the surface, but these two photos are from the Minkare Temple at Giza. Not many venture over this far to the smallest of the 3 main Giza pyramids. Those limestone blocks are monsters, 100 ton stones or more. One aspect is the how and why of transporting and using such giants, but also is to look at the weathering. They are much more weathered than most of the mastaba and tomb structures said to be built at the same time. So the real question is, just how old is this part of the complex?
