Colonel Vyse was a man credited with discovering the quarrymen's inscriptions of Khufu’s name written within the Great Pyramid at Giza. Dr. Daniel Jackson, however, believed his "discovery" was a fraud and that, therefore, the pyramids contained no hieroglyphs, suggesting they were not built by the Ancient Egyptians. His theory did not go over well with the professors he was lecturing. (Stargate)
Behind the scenes
There was a real man named Colonel Richard William Howard Vyse who did discover such inscriptions in the Great Pyramid, which many believe to be a fraud.
