The Great Sphinx of Giza is among the most widely recognized monuments in the world, and arguably one of the most astounding testaments left to us by past cultures. Archaeology has revealed many details about the way of life in Egypt at the time of its construction, although a number of questions remain.
Robert Schoch, Ph.D., is a Boston University geologist who has studied the Sphinx for decades. His work there beginning in the 1990s led him to believe that the age of the monument may be greater than historians generally believe, an idea that has fueled his search for further evidence of a “forgotten civilization” which may have existed earlier than is generally thought. We discuss all of this with Schoch, and his rationale for extending the age of Giza’s Sphinx, on this edition of The Micah Hanks Program.
