  • If you believe that MAn crawled out of the Stone Age and built these structures, then you love to sip the Kool-Aide. Graham Hancock has a plausible theory on these structures.

  • Forreal it’s like wtf were they doing during Ancient Egypt

  • Even in ancient times it never had a cap. Some earthquake shattered most of the casing off it in the 14th century, but even in Herodotus' time it didn't have a point. Like they never finished it. It's so weird.

  • We don't exactly know who built the Sphinx. The head is too small for the body, it doesn't line up with the pyramids and there is distinct water erosion on the base.
    And the base is of a lion, which is weird as lions and Egyptian religious beliefs don't really have any mention of lions or lion based deities.
    Khufus head is on it but there is speculation that he just re chiseled the head, what was previously a lion.
    There is speculation that the Sphinx is much older than than the pyramids.

  • The BBC did a great drama documentary on the building of the pyramids of the Giza plateau.
    It's about 15 years old and is called "Pyramid"
    A very accurate and compelling piece of film making.

  • They dated pyramids to be 12.500 years old back in the 80's with tons of evidence and this video still talks about how the Egyptians built it

  • That is simply one of the best facts there is. Really makes it hit just how long ago that was.

  • Fun fact: Construction for Lincoln Cathedral began in 1072AD and ended in 1311AD, making the construction of the church 239 years.

  • I really love the conclusion of this particular video – that look at how the pyramids have been a constant in an ever-changing world.

  • The Pyramids and Giza Plateau was reclaimed by Ancient Egyptians.. Even Khofu said this in his own writings. Also, how do you explain the sea shells and salt deposits located 100 meters high? It's because they predate the last flood… that was 15,000 years ago.. the end of the last Ice age…

  • Hey, on your "Historical" playlist, the video after this one (that is, video #34) is a clip from Deadpool 2 uploaded by someone else.

  • The pyramids were built because they thought a GIANT GOD OF DEATH is gonna step on egypt

  • When was the last age when the place have been floded with the sea? Because they found sea salt and shelves inside them…

  • Very good take on Egyptian history. For all the stuff written in the tombs and temple walls most of the so called information is either religious mythology or historical propaganda.

  • The pyramids are a great reminder of how fragile civilizations really are, they always rise and fall.
