A Review of Findings From Under the Giza Plateau
The Giza plateau is composed of limestone, a geological feature which creates natural crevices and pockets in the stone somewhat like Swiss cheese. Perhaps not so strange then that Giza was known anciently as ‘Rostau’, meaning the “mouth of the passages”. Reports of cavities and underground tunnels at Giza have circulated for thousands of years, and the discovery of several are recorded, but if an underground complex or hall of records exists, as is suspected by many, it has thus far remained elusive. The following is a review of the known underground chambers and tunnels at Giza.
