A new video on YouTube features Dr Zahi Hawass and Dr Mark Lehner discussing the recent drilling under the Great Sphinx at Giza on-site during the project. The testing was ostensibly done to establish whether the monument is at risk from the rising water table, though much of this video seems aimed at debunking the ‘New Age’ claims that there is a secret chamber beneath the Sphinx’s paw.

Interesting that Mark Lehner mentions these ‘New Age’ claims, and that he started work at the Great Sphinx with Zahi in 1978, without mentioning that he began his work there looking for those exact chambers through his association with the Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE). As for Zahi, the possibility of ‘secret chambers’ seems to depend mostly on whether he gets the credit for discovering them…
