25 years ago in the New York Times

Walter Sullivan, science editor and writer at the New York Times, was the first English speaking journalist to write that the Egyptian pyramids may have been cast from plastic rock instead of being hewn. I have been attending the International Archaeometry Symposium, held at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Long Island from May 18 to May 22, 1981. W. Sullivan covered the symposium and wrote a paper that was published in the Sunday edition of the New York Times, Sunday, May 24., 1981, page 39. I was just starting my archaeological research and the reader will certainly discover how this theory (the cast stone theory as it was called at that time, – to day I prefer to talk about agglomerated limestone concrete, reconstituted limestone block), evolved from an idea, a proposal, into a genuine scientific discovery, 25 years later.
