Yes there is now evidence that Alexander The Great Chose the Great Pyramid on the Giza Plateau in Egypt to be his final resting place and had the pyramid's limestone surfaces carved with his name and attributes. He also had the cap stone topping the pyramid replaced with a gilded carved stone resemblance of himself holding up a large mirror to the sun. Alexander's tomb remodelers were responsible for some of the interior carved shafts coming up from the bottomless pit down below and the apparent crack in the king's chamber sarcophagus maybe due to an attempt or a realized attempt to enter the treasury as the so called sarcophagus really is a means of moving a bearing granite wall stone with the floor stones first removed for entry. The wall stone is pushed though as the sarcophagus is shoved into the wall allowing a person to enter the sarcophagus below the wall on one side and put up out of it on the other side. It was when the shims were removed between the sarcophagus and the bearing wall stone shoved inward that the sarcophagus corner was cracked. It was tricky getting the stone to go back to its original position though there are bronze inset rings for lines to pull it back on the unseen side. Alexander the Great maybe buried under or within the pyramid itself. That will be some surprise for archeologists. Meanwhile a major art foundation is designing a 600 foot tall steel scaffolding system with cranes to to surround and remove each stone from the pyramids one by one and then rebuild it while restoring the exterior polished limestone. with a huge modern solid rose quartz pyramidal cap stone to be placed on top. All the secrets of the pyramids will be revealed including treasures from more than one emperor.
