Khufu: the First Heretic Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt?

Was the Great Pyramid really Khufu’s final resting place?

That is one of the greatest doubts of archaeology. On this subject a fervid debate among scholars originated, which has long slowed (and at times even impeded), objective analysis of the pyramid complex. Still, nowadays, any conclusion can be appreciated as a milestone towards the comprehension of a complex civilization, which inhabited the territories along the Nile during the dynastic, and especially the pre-dynastic, age.

It is undeniable that Egyptology has greatly contributed to our knowledge of a unique and incomparable civilization, incredibly developed socially, artistically and scientifically. Unfortunately, Egyptologists have also persisted in misattributing some archaeological finds to Dynastic Egyptians, which I believe have little to do with that civilization. This has created confusion among researchers and has affected our comprehension of the prehistory of Egypt.

Still unresolved remains, for example, the dispute over the Great Pyramid. While academics agree to confine its construction to the Fourth Dynasty, I believe that their position conflicts with more scientific evidences I observed in the last 15 years of studies on this subject.
