a.)  the Naveta d'es Tudons on Menorka after restoration. A ship as  symbolic
burial place  lying with bottom up. (2000 B.C.) In idea comparable to later boat
graves of the Vikings ?
b.)  King Kyros (559-529 B.C.) Gabled roof
c:)  King Bahram II (276-293 B.C.) Iran.Grave intrance 0.7 x 0.9 m.
Grave  chamber 4.45 x 5.1 m

So far it is in general  supposed that a port hole may enable the soul to leave
 the grave chamber..
Written references from the Pyramid Texts may support
 the view.
.

                  
 All grave corridors of the pyramids are  aligned ´exactly  to the  north pole. I.e.
 If the´
 soul   leaves  the  grave  by  a ´porthole´ it  arrives a   fixed  stars,    the >>imperishable<<  because they never fall  below the  horizon, never reached
 the underworld.

            
"The entrance  to the  Great Pyramid  is  on  the  north side, about 59 feet (18
metres)
 above ground level. A sloping corridor descends from it  through the
 pyramid's interior
masonry, penetrates the rocky  soil on  which the  structure
 rests, and ends in an
 unfinished  underground  chamber. From  the  descen-
ding  corridor  branches  an  ascending
  passageway  that  leads  to  a  room
known as the Queen's Chamber and to a great slanting
gallery that is151 feet
(46 metres) long.

At the upper end of this  gallery a long and  narrow  passage  gives access to
the  burial
 room  proper,  usually  termed  the  King's  Chamber. This room is
entirely  lined and  roofed
with  granite.  From the  chamber two narrow shafts
run  obliquely  through  the masonry  to  
the  exterior of  the  pyramid; it is not
known  whether they were designed for a  religious
 ppurpose  or were meant
for ventilation"..(Encyclo. Britanncia 2003))

Noteworthy this 20 x 20 cm northern shaft  points with an angle of 31 degrees
to the Northpole.The fulcum of the  world axle. Meanwhile  it is proven  that the
northern shaft is not open to the exterior. I.e.obviously not used  for ventilation.
Thereby impossible to  be  a  port hole allowing the  soul  to  leave  the  stony
chamber ? But :  Egyptian souls can pass illusory doors.

At  comparable  time  (2600-2200 B.C.)  the  Deng Hoog  on  Sylt (North Germany)
a dolmen under a hill with a passage outward (pointig to the south)

Problem: Pyramids in Egypt and dolmen in nothern Europe covered under a
hill may look purely accidental but biology points to a possible cultural relation.
Cheops had a blond daughter wearing a neckring.(Usech) Only a  decoration
or religious symbol?
The meaning  of  Usech / neckring / torques  in Near East and Europe is so
far  not established.


In Egypt and Sylt a  grave  chamber  under  a ' HILL'.  The  chambers  outward
connected by a corridor. A speculation : Could be that in both cases the burial chamber had been coverd symbolically with the primeval hill. (Urhuegel) being
a  basic-symbol of an ancient  Eurpean-Mediteranian nature religion ?

From view of Egyptians  pyramids  were the symbol of the Primeval  Hill.   Hieroglyph, primeval hill ( Throne-chair  of Osiris, Isis)
