Redating the great sphinx of giza schoch
What we do with this knowledge is up to us, but once digested, it changes everything.” – Joscelyn Godwin, Ph.
D., Colgate University Origins of the Sphinx, co-authored with my friend and colleague Robert Bauval, makes the case, based on multiple lines of evidence (including geological and seismic analyses, astronomical analyses, and interpretations of ancient Egyptian texts), that the origins of the Great Sphinx go back prior to the end of the last ice age (that is, before circa 9700 BCE).
Also presented is a significant discovery: a reinterpretation of the mysterious rongorongo texts of Easter Island, as the glyphs connect to the work of a prominent plasma physicist.
I discuss how solar outbursts and plasma discharges brought about the rapid end of the last ice age and the demise of the early civilizations of that remote period.

The focus of Pyramid Quest is the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt.
I have had numerous articles published in academic journals and popular magazines.
I have also written forewords for various books and had my work included in anthologies. In Forgotten Civilization I briefly recap over two decades of work on the Great Sphinx of Egypt, but more importantly I present my research centered on the magnificent Göbekli Tepe complex in Turkey, which confirms my thesis that ancient civilization goes back thousands of years earlier than mainstream historians generally care to acknowledge.

The assumption that weathering is principally the result of precipitation may not be correct.
Additional sources of weathering have been identified including: dew, groundwater, and even the Nile River.
Today the sand is gone, so weathering is turned on.
