What archaeologists have found in the recesses of the Egyptian pyramids

(ORDO NEWS) — In Egypt, there is a complex of pyramids of Giza. It contains three of the most famous pyramids, as well as the Sphinx. But what were these structures actually built for? Scientists have tried to find the answer.

The most popular theory related to the purpose of building the Egyptian pyramids is the following. Experts believe that the pyramids served as the burial tombs of the pharaohs. This theory is also supported by the fact that the two largest pyramids were just built as a tribute to Khafre and Khufu. And in many other pyramids, archaeologists find the remains of deceased monarchs.

At the same time, the pyramids are structures with narrow passages. Therefore, it is not easy to study them. Part of the territory of some pyramids is still not fully explored. This has led to the emergence of alternative theories related to the pyramids.

One such theory is that the pyramids actually acted as grain stores. This is explained by the fact that agriculture was the main part of the ancient Egyptian culture, and the climate in the country was dry. In addition, sandstorms could at any moment descend and destroy the entire crop. Therefore, grain was allegedly stored in pyramids.

However, from a scientific point of view, this theory does not make any sense. First of all, because archaeologists found separate granaries in Egypt: these were domed buildings that were usually found near cities. And it was easier to build these buildings than a pyramid. Grain was indeed found in the pyramids, but only in small quantities.

There are other theories related to religion, aliens, etc. But all of them were quickly refuted by experts.

Inside the pyramids, some things are really well preserved. For example, these are mummies. They were found by archaeologists in almost perfect condition, but this is due to the fact that the Egyptians simply carefully removed everything that could rot from those before burial.
