The Great Pyramid

HOLY CRUD! How can people with such little technology, not huge in size, not huge in the realistic department either actually build this? IT'S HUGE! The Great Pyramid of Giza is a structure that was the largest in the world for thousands of years, even when the United States was here! This sucker was built for Kerhut, an ancient pharaoh of egypt, and is the largest of all the pyramids, and took over 20 YEARS to build. Wow. Just wow. I mean, they did this with no cranes, no trucks, no really anything, except the brains they had in their skulls of theirs. Originaly, we thougt the pyramids were built by slaves, but we now think that workers were used. Some slaves might have been involved, but not as much as the workers.

  1. It seems like dead people were highly respected by the size of the tombs that they were buried in. It probably had a lot to do with their wealth and goverment positions.
