Beside the stomach of the large sculpture, the team uncovered yet another, smaller sphinx that appears to have been carved by an apprentice. They also found a rough-cut sculpture of a coiled cobra that had been carved do crown the head of the main sphinx. The finds included a fragment of a winged solar disk, shown above.

According to the team, the trove of hieroglyphic fragments also found at the quarry came from a since-destroyed shrine to Amenhotep III. The top half of the head, however, is broken off. Researchers uncovered the full body of a sculpture that measures roughly 5-meters long and 3. The team is now working to decipher the texts, which were written in red ochre. Archaeologists will continue excavations and digital recordings at the site during the next dig season.

I traditionally read long novels, and long series at that, but I found this short story to be a refreshing break while waiting for the next installment of several other series.

Word Wise: Enabled. Schoch claims the amount of water erosion the Sphinx has experienced indicates a construction date no later than the 6th millennium BC or 5th millennium BC, at least two thousand years before the widely accepted construction date and 1, years prior to the accepted date for the beginning of Egyptian civilisation.

Mr Reader concludes that the Sphinx is only several hundred years older than the traditionally accepted date believing the Sphinx to be a product of the Early Dynastic period. Both Schoch and Reader base their conclusions not only on the Sphinx and surrounding enclosure, but have also taken into account other weathering features found on the Giza plateau from monuments such as the Sphinx Temple which are known to be consistent with the time period the Sphinx was constructed.

Because these conclusions require a re-dating of the Sphinx to an earlier time before the construction of large monuments, this theory has not been accepted by mainstream Egyptologists. No comments have so far been submitted.
