Not only is this huge ancient labyrinth real, the truth is that it has been omitted by mainstream scholars for years. Many say it is one of the greatest discoveries from ancient Egypt that no one talks about. Many say that its contents will rewrite history as we know it. This ancient Labyrinth has been well documented in the past. Herodotus wrote about it: It has twelve courts covered in, with gates facing one another, six upon the North side and six upon the South, joining on one to another, and the same wall surrounds them all outside; and there are in it two kinds of chambers, the one kind below the ground and the other above upon these, three thousand in number, of each kind fifteen hundred. The upper set of chambers we ourselves saw […]
Many people consider the Pyramids of Egypt the trademark of the ancient Egyptian civilization, and perhaps the greatest achievements of ancient cultures thousands of years ago. However, the truth is that ancient Egypt doesn’t even have the most Pyramids on Earth, and there are other mind-boggling structures that are just as awesome as the Great Pyramid of Giza.
There are other places in Egypt that are as magical as the Pyramids.
These two videos are perhaps evidence that there are numerous ancient sites around the globe that are still waiting to be uncovered, discovered and recovered.
The ‘Lost Labyrinth of Egypt’ is easily considered one of the jewels of lost history.
It was even documented by Greek Philosopher Herodotus:
This I have actually seen, a work beyond words. For if anyone put together the buildings of the Greeks and display of their labours, they would seem lesser in both effort and expense to this labyrinth… Even the pyramids are beyond words, and each was equal to many and mighty works of the Greeks. Yet the labyrinth surpasses even the pyramids. Herodotus (‘Histories,’ Book, II, 148),
According to writing by Herodotus I the IV century BC: the labyrinth was “situated a little above the lake of Moiris and nearly opposite to that which is called the City of Crocodiles” (‘Histories,’ Book, II, 148).
This ancient Labyrinth has been well documented in ancient times, but for some reason, it has been lost in modern times.
Based on the descriptions of ancient texts such as those from Herodotus, and others who visited the magical labyrinth in the distant past, a 17th century German Jesuit scholar called Athanasius Kircher, created the first pictorial reproduction of the enigmatic labyrinth just as Herodotus described it:
It has twelve courts covered in, with gates facing one another, six upon the North side and six upon the South, joining on one to another, and the same wall surrounds them all outside; and there are in it two kinds of chambers, the one kind below the ground and the other above upon these, three thousand in number, of each kind fifteen hundred. The upper set of chambers we ourselves saw […]
Regrettably, this finding was tucked away from society apparently.
According to reports, the scientific results of the expedition that explored the labyrinth were published in 2008 in the scientific journal of the NRIAG and the results of the research were exchanged in a public lecture at the University of Ghent, which Media from Belgium attended.
So far we can only hope that in the near future an archaeological mission will be set up in order to explore one of the most interesting and controversial sites in Egypt.
