Erosion on the Giza Plateau

This image shows a block of stone, reportedly 3 tons in weight, that has fallen off a mastaba near the great pyramid on the Giza plateau. The fallen limestone block rests near Khufu's boat museum and its collapse is the result of natural erosion.

The boulder will be restored back to its original position starting this week.
