Appeal to the Authorities of Egypt or the Supreme Council of Antiquities
We call on the Supreme Council of Antiquities to authorise the excavation!

To this day, archaeologists have not been able to find the mummy of the builder of the Great Pyramid of Giza [1], although a place for the sarcophagus has been prepared in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid [2]. Why is it there? Who was and why did King Khufu (Cheops) build the Great Pyramid if he was never laid in it? Some Egyptologists claim that the pyramid served as an (un)ordinary tomb [1], but is it really? How is it possible that it has stood unmoved for so many thousands of years [3], considering that modern buildings, using the most advanced technology, fold like houses of cards, because of an earthquake or tsunami? Why did the ancient cultures of the world build pyramidal structures [4,5,6,7]? We should find answers to these and other questions in the tomb of King Khufu.

We, the members of Mission Pharaoh, have been searching for the tomb of King Khufu for more than 20 years. We are ONE STEP away from our goal. According to the georadar (GPR) survey of October 13, 2022, there are significant underground structures at site No. 1 (graphic). We are convinced that this entrance is one of the corridors that will lead archaeologists to the tomb of the builder of the Great Pyramid, which has been sought for millennia.

Our separate ground-penetrating radar survey (also on October 13, 2022) at the adjacent site No. 2 (graphic) confirmed the indications regarding the location of the palace-temple complex of King Khufu [8,9,10]. Preliminary cleansing works, carried out by Egyptian authorities, have already revealed ancient buildings, most likely the Lower Temple of King Khufu.

Reaching the Lower Temple will be an extraordinary discovery, but to the best of our knowledge, it is site No. 1 that holds the greatest treasures and source of knowledge. It is time to clear the SITE NO. 1 and bring in the research team. Discovery cannot wait! We are afraid that the disclosure of the Ancient World's greatest secrets will be marginalised as world tensions escalate and natural disasters become more violent, killing tens of thousands. Unfortunately, also the practise of wild excavations, which last for thousands of years on the Giza Plateau [11, 12], has now increased to an unprecedented scale [13]. The achievements of humanity are stolen and fall into the hands of the powerful, instead of going to museums or pages of history for the benefit of all of us [14, 15].

As a non-profit group, we call on the Supreme Council of Antiquities to grant an excavation permit for ANY archaeological mission that will bring the truth to light.

Please support our petition, join the history enthusiasts.

It is time for Egypt to speak so that this time our call will not be left unanswered!
