Two historians claim the Ancient Egyptians did not build the Pyramids

by Ancient Code


The historians and authors of a ‘controversial’ forthcoming book firmly believe there is a strong possibility a second ‘Great Sphinx’ remains buried at the Giza plateau and suggest the Great Pyramid at Giza were built thousands of years earlier than previously thought, and not by the ancient Egyptians.

Two historians have questioned whether the ancient Egyptians built the great pyramid of Giza or the pyramids of Giza for that matter. Instead, the two researchers say, these monuments could have been built by a lost civilization that existed on Earth which we are yet to identify.

The authors of an upcoming book that investigates the only remaining wonder of the ancient world cast doubt on the conventional thinking that it was the ancient Egyptians who built the pyramids at Giza in about 2,500 BC.

In fact, this isn’t the first time authors have questioned the idea that the ancient Pyramids built these massive structures.

The two historians Gerry Cannon and Malcolm Hutton affirm that the great Sphinx of Giza, positioned in front of the pyramids must have been carved from a natural rock long before any sand covered the area, which means that at that time, long ago the area had to be fertile.

In an interview with Mr.Cannon said:

“The Sphinx must have been carved when there was no sand there. You can not carve a rock when it is under the sand. ”

“When it was not under sand was about 12,000 years ago and the Egyptians weren’t there.”

This would mean, according to the research of experts, that the pyramids and the Sphinx were built at least 12,500 years ago and could have been standing there before the beginning of the Ice Age.

The significant time difference would mean that the massive ‘tombs’ were not built by the ancient Egyptians, according to Mr. Cannon.

The historian, though not completely convinced, believes these massive structures may have been built long ago by an advanced ancient civilization that existed somewhere in the region—perhaps Atlantis—which was eventually consumed by the great flood.

Mr. Cannon said:

“I have done some research and there is a direct line from the pyramids to a submerged continent with a mountain in the sea and on the mountain of the sea, there are two pinnacles that resemble the pyramids. It may be Atlantis, when Atlantis sank they went to another place, probably Egypt and they had the technology to build those pyramids. There is no one else who could have done it, they did not have the technology.”

No one knows who or what was there 12,000 years ago.

The three smaller pyramids in Giza were probably built by the Egyptians as they could be built by man.

However, it is impossible for the three largest pyramids—that have 2,250,000 blocks in them and some blocks weigh up to 250 tons—to have been built by the Egyptians.

We could not even move it with all the equipment we have today, so they had to have been made by a civilization that was more advanced than we are today.

The words of Mr. Cannon and others who have raised doubts about the Egyptians and the construction of the pyramids have come across a brick wall by the Egyptian authorities who maintain the ancient Egyptians as the actual builders of the pyramids.

Second Sphinx

In addition to the idea that the pyramids were not constructed by the ancient Egyptians, the authors argue there is a great chance there was s SECOND Sphinx at the Giza plateau.


Ancient Code was founded in 2012 by author and researcher Ivan Petricevic. Thre website is based on the Ancient Astronaut Theory, but it also offers its readers a vast collection of articles about History, Mythology, Lost Civilizations, etc.

I seriously think that FOR SURE, the earth changes vastly with the Precessional cycle, Milankovitch cycles! Indeed, the Hindu writings about it’s all good, then destruction, then builds up again… think of the myths of Ragnarok? Nice place, then Ice Again……….. We DO know now that the Sahara was once wet and lush. You read in the Bible.. LIONS, BEARS, etc… in Israel. Duh.. land of milk and honey is NOT desert…. People, we can’t stop the changes. Adapt or die is the law of Nature. Climate change is the NORM. I am reading that YES indeed, parts of the Sahara are right now, getting more rainfall.

Gee, Ya mean I’m not crazy after all. I told a few people the ‘must have been carved’ concept months ago. But as everything in my life, it goes laughed at, mocked and thrown to obscurity. Good to know i’m not alone now; it gets lonely.

The fact someone with credentials is coming out to say they believe these monuments to be built NOT by Egyptians but an older civilization is NOT new. Many have battled that story for decades… I’ve been doing it here for a couple years now.

All kind of strange theories tries now and then to prove that the great pyramid was not built by ancient Egyptians, claiming that they didn’t have the technology, but yet the ancient Egyptians almost new that would happen and left another proof that they had technologies that we cannot discover the secret behind it until this moment. One of these technologies was the Embalming. when any western scientist knows the secret of Embalming the pharaos mommies i will believe their theories about ancient Egyptians
