Pyramids are scanned – level 1

18-11-2015 07:00

In the Middle East, people scan the pyramids. The results are surprising.

People built the pyramids from one material. Every stone should be the same. However, there is an anomaly. One stone is hot. This is not normal. Experts want to know the reason for this.

The project is called “Scan Pyramids”. The project plans to map the pyramids. People also want to find more secret rooms inside them.

Difficult words: scan (to look at something with a special machine), anomaly (something not normal).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
