"By all means let the old theories have a decent burial; though we should take care that in our haste none of the wounded are buried alive."
Written by Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie in his book "The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh" in 1880, (S5-[S3]-P4-[C2]-L41). *

- The sections in 5.5.xx (Grand Gallery) are under reconstruction. (I found an error of 0,1 cubit in the height which must be corrected in all calculations).
