Key aspects of pyramid construction from quarry to completion.

The most common misconception about the pyramids is that they were built by slaves. Recent archeological evidence suggests they were instead constructed by paid workers. Some may have performed this work as a form of tax payment for several months of the year. Skilled engineers would have planned and orchestrated the building. An estimated 10,000-20,000 people would have been working on a pyramid at any one point in time. They were well fed and provided with shelter near the pyramids. Plus their burial sites close by indicate they were respected and were not slaves.

Much of the limestone was quarried from the Giza plateau itself, meaning the stones did not need to be transported far. The granite casing of Menkaure’s pyramid, on the other hand, was transported from Aswan, around 600 miles, or 1000 km up the Nile.

  • If you are still convinced that the ancient egyptians built the pyramids using basic tools, you should watch a documentary on youtube called “The revelation of the pyramids”. It will change your perspective on history.

  • I wonder how their eyes coped with the bright sun reflecting off the white surface of the covering stone. Maybe they blackened the outer surface whilst fitting it to stop the glare?

  • It would be much easy to built pyramid with iron then the rocks.. , I think they didn't had enough iron . They were really smart people. They did everything very easily and without leaving any clue behind

  • Egyptians didnt build them, they inherited them..
    Pounding granite with those balls at Aswan does not cause the scoop marks that were left along the chanels.
    This video was not very informative at all 🙄

  • Is it possible that they just took longer to build that we think?

  • No joking, this is most likely the way they did it.

  • And now they have a gigantic museum about a mile away that is still being built and almost a decade later on it's starting date. Luckily the land behind it is preserved for now

  • Nice video, but it you believe this you'll believe anything… copper saws, sledges, 3 ton granite stones, ramps, 3 mins to place each stone added all together simply makes no sense
