A group of Egyptian and foreign experts presented on Sunday a new project to try to unravel the secrets of the Pyramids, including the search for new hidden cameras inside.

Architects, engineers and scientists from Egypt, France, Canada and Japan will use modern infrared technology and advanced detectors to map two pyramids at Giza and the two pyramids at Dahshur, south of Cairo.

«This special group will study these pyramids to see if they still have hidden chambers or hide other secrets inside.«, Explained the Minister of Antiquities Mamduh al-Damati in a press conference. «These engineers and architects will carry out the work using non-destructive technology that does not damage the pyramids.«.

The experts explained that the study, known as «Scan Pyramids"(Scanning the Pyramids)," will be a new attempt to understand, in the first place, how these monuments were built. " Many previous missions have tried to unravel this mystery, but archaeologists and scientists have yet to reach a concrete theory explaining how the structures were built.

«A similar attempt was made 30 years ago, but this is the first project carried out globally and using cutting-edge technology to observe the interior of the pyramids.«Explained Mehdi Tayoubi, founder of the HIP Institute.

This project is expected to last until the end of 2016 and they hope that if they get good results, they can move it to find a possible hidden chamber in the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings, which could be the burial place of the queen nefertiti, site in which the archaeologist Nicholas Reeves explained that it could be found.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
