Mystery Tunnel in Khufu Pyramid Revealed With New Scanning Technology

Found in the northern part of the pyramid, the discovery was part of ‘Scan Pyramids’, a multinational archaeological mission using infra-red thermography and muons tomography to produce three-dimensional imagery of the insides of the Great Pyramids of Giza.
