  1. I don’t know,Yes, Yes it´s interesting ,but that info is more about the building. I am more interested in trying to find who the ones were who build the first structures. That is why i now search sites around Egypt to follow the trail where they came from the Great Pyramid.

    I dont know but the only record of Khufu and the great pyramid are orders by him having the pyramid renovated . Very interesting. But has anyone in modern times actually cut, transported, and placed similar stone blocks (especially granite blocks) using the tools that were available in ancient Egypt? I’m just a curious man. Thanks!

    This book will look at the construction, meaning and conservation of the Great Pyramid of Giza. The focus is on an engineering perspective, analysing how the pyramids were built and looking at the design and structure. The archeological aspect to the book takes a look at what has been learned about the pyramids through various studies over the years. The author also gives brief information about the pharaoh Cheops and others for whom many of these (surviving or not) were built.

  4. The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.
    Based on a mark in an interior chamber naming the work gang and a reference to the fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10- to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC. Initially at 146.5 metres (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 4600 years. Originally, the Great Pyramid was covered by limestone casing stones that formed a smooth outer surface; what is seen today is the underlying core structure. Some of the casing stones that once covered the structure can still be seen around the base. There have been varying scientific and alternative theories about the Great Pyramid’s construction techniques. Most accepted construction hypotheses are based on the idea that it was built by moving huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them into place.
    There are three known chambers inside the Great Pyramid. The lowest chamber is cut into the bedrock upon which the pyramid was built and was unfinished. The so-called[1] Queen’s Chamber and King’s Chamber are higher up within the pyramid structure. The main part of the Giza complex is a set of buildings that included two mortuary temples in honour of Khufu (one close to the pyramid and one near the Nile), three smaller pyramids for Khufu’s wives, an even smaller “satellite” pyramid, a raised causeway connecting the two temples, and small mastaba tombs surrounding the pyramid for nobles.

  5. The great Pyramid was the tallest historical man-made structure in the world for over 4600 years. It has about 146.5 meters of height.
    It is believed the Pyramid was built as a tomb of fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu and was constructed over a 20 year period.
    It is the Last remaining of the seven wonders of the world, the great Pyramids of Giza are perhaps the most famous and discussed structures in the history.

  6. One of the 7 wonders of the world.
    When you get close to the pyramids you feel the magnanimity of them. What a great marvel of construction it is. 100,000 labours worked day and night for years to make it a symbol of strength which would bear the ups and downs for 4500 years to stand tall today.
    I love this place. The precision and the engineering skill of the Arabs in the olden days, with the absence of modern equipment, is beyond comprehension. The existence of the pyramid to this day is a manifestation of their professionalism in building the pyramid.

      There were no Arabs in the building of the pyramids of Giza. There weren’t even the Greeks and Romans that preceded the Arabs, only native Egyptians and the tribes that they conquered.
