The Great pyramid of Giza is the last remaining wonder of the ancient world and still conceals many mysteries around its construction and internal configuration. This talk will describe the challenges, engineering approaches and outcomes of a robotic expedition to explore small shafts (so called air shafts) within the pyramid.
