A recent discovery in Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza could reveal more about the construction of the world-famous landmark, according to a team of scientists from the “Scan Pyramids” project backed by the Egyptian Tourism Ministry of Antiquities.

The team used a non-destructive technique known as cosmic-ray muon radiography to scan a gabled limestone structure, discovering a nine-meter hidden corridor. The shaft is situated above the main entrance to Khufu’s Pyramid, one of the most significant archaeological monuments in the world and a site that still holds countless mysteries.

Scientists reported several discoveries in the Great Pyramid of Giza five years ago, and the ongoing scans are helping to better understand the function and architectural makeup of the 5,000-year-old structure.
