Did Joseph bury his Pharaoh in a Grain Silo and then build a pyramid on top of it??
At the bottom of the central shaft there is a platform on which stood the Sarcophagus of Djoser. The shaft itself was cased with large limestone blocks and the roof was sealed with a heavy granite slab. The Step Pyramid was constructed above.
Imhotep constructed an elaborate network of tunnels around the central shaft which linked to the main entrance tunnel.
Were these tunnels made to retrieve grain or were they made to throw off grave robbers?
Some of the tunnels actually went beneath the platform for the sarcophagus of Djoser. Why was there a need for a platform? Was the shaft originally used to store grain? Were the tunnels used to retrieve grain from the bottom of the shaft? Did the platform plug the hole in the bottom of the shaft used to access the grain.
Was the shaft first used to store grain and then converted into a burial chamber for Djoser?
