With Egyptologist Nigel Skinner-Simpson (Nigel Skinner-Simpson), Collins reconstructed model of the underground complex, which gave vozmodno enter the caves. The researchers managed to see a significant segment of the underground passages, but at a certain distance the air became too sparse to continue. In addition, among other hazards Collins noted the presence of poisonous spiders, and a host of invisible in the dark pits and voids.
