The history of the discovery of great works of the ancient world is inevitably a history of the groups and individuals that made such discoveries possible. From Schliemann's search for Troy to Petrie's excursions to Mount Horeb, there have been entrepreneurs, scientists, artists, and other visionaries who cast aside unwarranted doubts and persevered in their quest for something far greater themselves. Many of these groups and individuals took to heart Shakespeare's charge [1]:

"There comes a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood leads on to fortune, omitted, all the voyage of their lives is bound in shallows and miseries."

At this particular juncture in time, one such search and imminent discovery involves nothing less than the famed ancient Egyptian Labyrinth ("Mataha" in the Egyptian language)... i.e.,


One might have thought that something 304 meters (997 feet) long by 244 meters (800 ft) wide -- whose location was apparently accurately described by Herodotus (ca. 484-430 BCE) -- might have been an easy find. However, in modern times, there is the small matter of millions of tons of sand overlying the site. And short of modern technology (such as Ground Penetrating Radar to visualize what is in fact under all that sand), there are the necessary ingredients of money, time, money, energy, money, and... well... commitment by key individuals.

The efforts by the Egyptian authorities, including members of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, the National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics (NRIAG), and Cairo University, have of course been essential to the effort and its current successes.

Other groups and individuals who have made notable contributions, to which credit must rightfully be acknowledged, include among many others:

The HORUS Foundation (Herodotus Original Research Using Science), an organization dedicated to assembling experts and state-of-the-art technologies from the aerospace industry to maximize archaeological research in relation to the written record of Herodotus.

Frank M. Clark is a semi-retired aerospace executive, having more than forty years management experience of major aircraft programs. His credits include being the Chief Executive Officer of Megalifter Company (investigating hybrid lighter than air technology), CEO of Clark Aircraft Corporation (exploring terrestrial transportation of large space components for the NASA Space Shuttle program), Consultant to Boeing, Hughes Satellite Division, Rockwell Space Shuttle Division, and NASA Augusta Aerospace.

With this experience, combined with his association with many leading scientist and engineers --and his long held interest in archaeology -- Mr. Clark has devoted more than ten years research into Biblical and related ancient texts, leading him to the development of a template with which to assess any text and archaeological works by accredited academic scholars.

His first target was the fabled Herodotus Labyrinth. As a result of his contacts in the aerospace industry, specifically Jet Propulsion Laboratories, JPL satellite technology was utilized to pin point the suspected site of the Labyrinth of Egypt. The HORUS Foundation, a non-profit foundation,was developed to act as the funding arm for the necessary field work. the HORUS Foundation has begun actual field work from these early developments in Egypt. This resulted in a permit being issued to electronically examine the site at Lake Moeris and the nearby Hawara pyramid complex. HORUS has also joined forces with Louis De Cordier of Belgium, Dr. Mohammad Abbas, and a wide range of other interested groups and individuals. Mr. Clark can be reached at (NEW number): 805-798-0582 (prevously 805 570-8065).

Mark Beaver is a research assistant and former Lawyer from Australia, who has collaborated with Frank Clark for the past twenty years on various aircraft projects and now acts as co-partner and coordinator for the HORUS Foundation. Mr. Beaver also has a media and film industry background and will be acting as the interface for that industry with the HORUS Foundation History Project. He can be reached at: (505) 310-2617.

Dr. Dan S. Ward is a member of the HORUS Foundation and the primary author and creator of the Library of Halexandria, the latter inspired by the ancient Library of Alexandria, Egypt. Dr. Ward brings to the Egyptian Labyrinth project forty years of research and writing in science and ancient history, with considerable effort devoted toward ancient Egyptian History. Dr. Ward can be reached through his website.

Louis De Cordier (Belgium °1978 ) is the Mataha-expedition coordinator. A well known contemporary artist, his work can be interpreted in multiple ways, a mixture of architecture, nature, art, technique and science . His modules and installations are strongly linked to nature. Each module is a place to live in, to survive in while being protected from the outside world and the elements. The modules can be transported to another place, just like in nature some animals carry their house.

The vision of the Mataha-expedition is seen by Louis De Cordier as an early foray of a holistic movement to enable research and innovation through the cooperation of varied art & science disciplines. Devoted to the preservation and investigation of Egyptian antiquities, Louis De Cordier started the project with a series of private lectures, funding the project with the sale profits of the Golden Sun Disk -- the latter a timepiece designed by him to ignite the global fire of comprehensive awareness and awakening, and an opener of ways to meditate about our human condition and the destiny of our species.

The record incorporates sacred geometry, earth sciences and astronomy. Its message reflects the state of Man, broken free, wandering endlessly around in an ever-changing space. The sculpture is a place for rest, a sacred instrument for moving through this dynamic and chaotic space time. The Golden Sun Disk, an archaeological artifact of the future, is an expression of artistic and technological creation and a symbol of human-scaled introspection. In the eventuality of the fall of civilization, the design of the time piece conceals the power and hope to transmit its content to very distant generations. For more information about his works and projects see www.louisdecordier.com.

Other groups and individuals working on the Mataha Project include:

Ghent University/Kunst-Zicht.

Cairo University

Leuven University

Association Egyptologique Reine Elisabeth

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization)

Isel Foundation
