Hi all,
Many thanks for your kind comments. Lets hope that something is published on the new pyramid, though l am a bit pessimistic on that front.
Probably the strangest aspect of the substructure are the two long trenches in the chamber floor that lead to the sand box passages, they appear illogical, when we normally just see a square hole to allow a person entry. The central trench leading to the sarcophagus makes sense for introduction of the coffin, so is it possible that the N-S portions of the sand box passages were utilized for other burials, necessitating the cutting of the trenches to allow the introduction of other coffins. Could we have three burials in this substructure? It might help explain why we have a princess in the sarcophagus that appears more built for a king. Could it be that the monument was incomplete and abandoned, did some subsequent ruler adapt the structure and bury members of his family there?
Highly speculative yes; but lets hope they publish something soon, its maddening having to work with a few crumbs.
