Are parts of the Great Sphinx of Giza more than 5000 years old? There was a controversy about this question 15 years ago on which I didn't find anything to conclusively prove or debunk it.

    I'm sure the materials are older than the Sphinx, but what parts are you referring to? There are always controversies about certain landmarks but unless you can specify the controversy this might be closed or moved to Skeptics. – MichaelF Nov 5 '12 at 13:28

This controversy is analyzed in detail under http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphinx_water_erosion_hypothesis

  • therefore this question can be closed unless there are new facts to be added which seems unlikely. – Anno2001 Nov 5 '12 at 13:59
