Our logical deductions were that these had been part of an attempt to pull the block from the wall (no doubt breaking it in the process) so as to explore a known or suspected cavity.
It is unlikely this would have been risked unless a cavity had been detected by a remote sensing technology in advance.

Thousands and perhaps tens of thousands of years of use are going to create a large inventory of items that may have been left at various times.
If you find a dated coin at a dig site you only know that the site is at least as old as the coin not that it is the age of the coin.
If the building coincided with the dating to 10,000 years ago, that whole Giza acropolis would have been a lake or next to a lake and the desert would be tropical forests.
There is perhaps a bigger story here that needs telling.
The German archaeologists were very wrong to steal from the pyramids but this does not necessitate that their research or conclusions were invalid.
Science only progresses by keeping our minds open to alternative hypotheses.
It is of no surprise that the Ancient Egyptian section of the Ministry of State of Antiquities vehemently refuted such results, brandishing the archaeologists as “amateurs”, and reemphasising that the Great Pyramid belongs to King Khufu, the second king of the fourth dynasty, and that it was built during his reign to be used as his royal burial place for eternity.
They refer to evidence presented by Colonel Howard Vyse in 1837, in which an inscription was found in a small room bearing Khufu’s name.
It is there you will see the heads of the metal spikes still embedded.
