For years, the ancient pyramids have perplexed historians over their complex structure.
Egyptologists believe they were built by 100,000 people as a tomb for the Fourth Dynasty Pharaoh, Khufu in 2580-2560BC.
But conspiracy theorists claim the building capabilities of those living at the time meant they could not have achieved such a feat.
History Channel show Ancient Aliens – which follows ancient astronaut theorists’ claims that aliens have visited the Earth throughout history – suggested the structure could have been created as a “power plant” in a recent episode.
And Kevin Burns – the producer of the series – has added further fuel to the fire with an intriguing theory.
In an exclusive interview with Daily Star Online, he claimed that the interior of the biggest structure in the complex – the Great Pyramid – doesn’t match up with it being created as a tomb.
“The Great Pyramid doesn’t make sense to be a tomb, it doesn’t have any hieroglyphs in it,” he told this site.
“No bodies were ever found in it and the chambers don’t fit anything.
“The Egyptian pharaohs were found underground, not in pyramids.”
After being granted special access into the Great Pyramid, the producer shed light on what the team saw which supposedly supported these claims further.
“The inside of the Great Pyramid is an extraordinarily sophisticated structure,” he said.
“It has granite walls where the stones are precisely fitted together and absolutely sheer.
“They’re not hand-cut, they’re not rough – it’s like the work of the most extraordinarily precise masonry.”
It led Kevin to believe the structure may have been built before the biblical Great Flood – about “10,000 years ago”.
“The theory that I find very convincing was that the Great Pyramid was a pre-flood structure – it could be far older than we think,” he added.
“The Great Pyramid seems to be a structure that doesn’t fit with the technology of the ancient Egyptians.
“There is evidence of a Great Flood in histories and carvings all over the world.
“Was there a human civilisation before the Great Flood and how sophisticated could that civilisation have been?
“It does seem to be more and more certain (that that happened).”
