Recent studies claim that the Egyptian Sphinx is 800,000 years old

Ancient Egypt is by far the most famous time and place of all time.

As you can tell by now, we have come across thousands, if not tens of thousands of discoveries surrounding their culture and crafts and as far as we know it is the civilization that we have discovered the most.

But unfortunately, we still know very little at the end of the day. Take, for example, its most famous structures of all time, the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid.

We know a little how old the pyramid is, but as for the sphinx, we are literally in the dark.

However, recently, a team of Ukrainian researchers established a new algorithm that helped them discern the correct age for the facility.

All this came to Manichev Vyacheslav and Alexander Parkhomenko some time ago when they discovered the fact that there are signs of water erosion on the sides of the Sphinx.

This means that the Sphinx must have been submerged under water in ancient times. But what water could spread far enough to completely surround it?

The Nile lakes are the most obvious culprits, so by really studying how long ago the water could have reached this far, the two were able to discern that the Sphinx must be at least 800,000 years old at this point.

This dates the Sphinx back to at least the Pleistocene epoch and makes it the oldest structure ever discovered in ancient Egypt.
