The exact date of the construction of the Great Sphinx in Egypt

(ORDO NEWS) — On the Giza plateau, for more than one millennium, there has been a statue of a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a man. Scientists call the number 4500 – that’s how many years the creation of the ancient Egyptians is. However, recent studies say that the age of the cultural monument is much older.

For a decade, R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, an Egyptologist, studied the Luxor Temple. In the process, he drew attention to water erosion on the Sphinx. Later, specialist John Anthony West will say that this discovery turns history upside down.

It was determined that in ancient times Egypt was a very humid place. Up to 100 mm of precipitation could fall a year. True, the region 5000-6000 years ago was not characterized by rains that could have left deep erosion. This means that the Sphinx is much older.

According to geologist Robert Schoch, the statue could have been erected in 10,000 BC. BC, not in 2500. It should be noted that not all Egyptologists share the findings of their colleagues. Some are convinced of the speculative nature of their conclusions. Plus, the history of Egypt cannot be refuted by just one discovery.
