 Egypt's antiquities authorities on Thursday unveiled a newly discovered, sealed chamber inside one of the Great Pyramids of Giza, just outside B, dating back some 4,500 years.

The corridor: on the north side of the Pyramid of Khufu—was discovered using advanced scanning technology. It is 9 meters (about 30 feet) long and 2 meters (over 6 feet) wide, located above the main entrance of the pyramid.

Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass and the country's tourism minister, Ahmed Issa, announced the discovery at an unveiling ceremony outside the pyramid on Thursday. The Scan Pyramids Project, an international program that uses scans to look at unexplored parts of ancient structures, was credited with the find.

Khufu's Pyramid: Named after its builder, a Fourth Dynasty pharaoh who ruled from 2509 to 2483 BC. — is one of three pyramids that make up the Great Pyramid of Giza complex. The Egyptian pyramids are the only one of the seven ancient wonders of the world that have survived to this day.
