A rare, ancient photograph of the Sphinx before it was completely excavated.
This has led several scholars to believe that the ancient necropolis was once submerged under the sea.But where is the compelling evidence?Other than water erosion marks clearly seen at the Sphinx and other parts of the plateau, is there anything else that could prove the landscape was submerged?Archaeologist Sherif El Morsi, who has worked extensively on the Giza plateau for more than twenty years, and his colleague Antoine Gigal, discovered a strange fossil at the Giza plateau.
It backs up theories that the Pyramid, as well as the Sphinx, was once submerged underwater.
But Gigal and El Morsi were not the first to propose or study that the Giza plateau was submerged.
The pyramids and Sphinx submerged
Dr. Robert M. Schoch was one of the first experts to address the idea that the plateau’s ancient structures are far older than what mainstream scholars suggest and that the entire region was once submerged underwater.
Back in the early ’90s, Dr. Schoch proposed that the Great Sphinx of Giza was a structure that is thousands of years older than archaeologists currently accept and that it was created between 5,000 and 9,000 BC.
This theory was based on erosion patterns of water discovered at Giza’s monuments and the surrounding landscape.
El Morsi and his colleagues have been trying to prove that theory right by searching the Giza plateau for clues that may reveal the monuments’ true nature.
And their search for answers eventually culminated in a discovery that many suggest is conclusive evidence of a submerged Giza plateau.
During one of their studies of the area, and as researchers analyzed and documented erosion marks of the monuments at Giza, they discovered a fossil.
