CAIRO: An Egyptian archaeologist overseeing a project to scan a pyramid for voids on Saturday criticised the announcement of a discovery of a passenger plane-sized cavity in the Great Pyramid, reports AFP.


Scientists with the ScanPyramids project revealed on Thursday that the void discovered with subatomic particle scans was the first major structure found inside the pyramid since the 19th century.  The findings were published by the science journal Nature.


But Zahi Hawass, who heads the ScanPyramids science committee overseeing the project, said there was no new “discovery”.
