From the Ancient Egypt Research Associates (AERA) E-Bulletin, 06.06.2017 :

Quote:
Watch "Unearthed - Secret History of the Sphinx" next Tuesday!

Earlier this year, Dr. Mark Lehner worked with a documentary film crew to digitally deconstruct & recompose the Sphinx, Sphinx Temple and Khafre Valley Temple in order to help better visualize these structures and advance our understanding of how these incredible monuments were built.

This work drew heavily on the research Dr. Lehner did with University of Tübingen geologist Dr. Thomas Aigner, showing the 4th Dynasty Egyptians created the Sphinx along with these two temples as part of the same quarry-construction sequence. The ancient builders moved massive blocks, some weighing up to 100 tons, from the quarry that became the Sphinx ditch to the southeast to build the Khafre Valley Temple and, as they quarried deeper, to the east to build the Sphinx Temple.

The program "Unearthed: Secret History of the Sphinx" will begin airing in the U.S. on the Science Channel at 9pm CT on Tuesday, June 13th. It will also be shown on the Discovery Channel in Europe, France TV, CBC in Canada, and via broadcasters in Asia. Check your local listings for more information.

Greetings, Lutz.
