The Aswan Quarry - Was a HUGE Megalith Extracted in Pre-Dynastic Times?

3 months ago

In a rarely seen part of the ancient granite quarry in Aswan, Egypt, there is evidence for a gigantic block, possibly larger than the unfinished obelisk being extracted in ancient times. What's more, there are strong indications here that this was done in pre-dynastic times, before the Ancient Egyptian civilization ever begun their own quarrying operations on this site.

Join me as we investigate the so-called 'harbor' area of the quarry, and examine the evidence for pre-dynastic quarry operations, and the removal of a massive block of granite in antiquity.

Many thanks to Simon Reynolds of Kinetik for the awesome new intro animation!
