After so much time researching, archeologists and scientists finally agree on how the pyramids were built. It’s really baffling how these giant and massive structures were built using 50 ton stone blocks, using only manual labor.
There is so much mystery surrounding the pyramids and people travel from all over the world to see them. Let’s delve into the mystery that is the ancient pyramids and let’s learn some facts.
The First Thought
Researchers initially believed that it probably took around 20 years for 20,000 people to build the largest pyramid. It was built around 2550 BC under the order of Pharaoh Khufu. Historians and other experts claim that the Egyptians only used wooden tools and ropes to build this kind of structure.
When we take a look at it from today’s perspective, it seems highly unlikely that the ancient people managed to build something so extraordinary using only wood and ropes. It’s no wonder why it took 20 years for all 20,000 people to finish the magnificent project.
