Does the mysterious void in the Great Pyramid of Giza contain a fabled iron throne?
A hidden room in the Great Pyramid of Giza may also be home to a relic that's straight out of our pop culture fantasies.
In November, researchers announced they had used cosmic rays to discover (or maybe more like rediscover) a big, empty space inside the largest of the Great Pyramids located in Giza, Egypt. A team of French robotics researchers is building a tiny blimp that could let scientists peer inside the void...
Newfangled muon imaging recently discovered a huge empty space inside Khufu's Pyramid (also known as the Great Pyramid of Giza), but exploring these ancient structures without damaging them is tricky. Two French research institutes have come up with an intriguing concept: An autonomous robot blimp. Show More Summary

The new secret room found inside Egypt's Great Pyramid has been hailed as the biggest discovery inside the Giza landmark since the 19th century.
Just days ago, scientists found a previously undiscovered chamber inside the Great Pyramid of Giza. As it turns out, the makers of Assassin's Creed: Origins had the jump on them. As Kotaku's Stephen Totilo notes, the space itself is already built into the game, which came out almost a week prior to the findings getting published. Show More Summary
The ink isn’t even dry on the news stories (ask your parents what it means) about the discovery of a massive, previously unknown void or empty area inside the Great Pyramid of Giza that was being called “the discovery of the century” when the century suddenly ended as a renowned Egyptian archeologist announced that this...

If you check the news the first thing that you will see should be the new discovery made at the Great Pyramid of Giza. A new huge secret room has been found inside it and it became one of the most important discoveries. However, youShow More Summary
Earlier this week, news broke that scientists had discovered a previously undetected open space in Egypt's 4,500-year-old Great Pyramid of Giza. The new Egypt-set adventure game Assassin's Creed Origins actually won't need an update adding the chamber, because as the game's creators explained to me, they already thought to put one in. More »
A mysterious void has been discovered in the Great Pyramid of Giza and Egyptologists believe it could finally shed light on how the ancient tombs were constructed. The enigmatic gap, which is around 100ft long is situated directly above the Grand Gallery, an elaborate access route which cuts through the pyramid. Show More Summary
A void secreted away in the largest pyramid in Giza has been revealed thanks to some space-age technology. Scientists used cutting-edge imaging techniques to see how particles called muons behaved deep within the Great Pyramid, alsoShow More Summary
A strange void has opened up in the Great Pyramid of Giza, which could explain how the Pyramids where built.
Scientists say they've found a mysterious chamber hidden deep inside Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza. The cavity is the first large inner structure discovered inside the pyramid since the 19th century. Jonathan Vigliotti reports.
