How the Pyramids were built

The Pyramids are considered one of the seven wonders of the world in Egypt. It is considered a mystery to many, given the heavy size of the stones and the lack of technological development at the time, and in this article we will show you how Giza Pyramids were built?. The ancient Egyptians used a large number of manpower in the construction of the pyramids participated in the construction of the Pyramid of Cheops located in Giza between 20,000 to 30,000 men, which lasted about 23 years, It should be noted that it was not the slaves who participated in its construction, but those who participated in its construction are free men, they were exempted from paying taxes, in addition to giving them clothes, housing, and free food, they were given all that in recognition of their efforts, and to encourage them to continue their work without interruption. The workers used a variety of tools to cut the blocks used in the construction of the pyramids, including granite hammers, and copper chisels. Building through the sand with the help of large wooden sleds, they are pulled over the wet sand, which reduces the dragging force by half. The pyramid builders built mud-brick ladders and then covered them with wax chips to harden their surface, so that they could pull the stones up until they reached their exact place in the pyramid, and then repeated those steps each time they climb up.

We could evidently prove this method as a reason seeing this kind of a ramp at the top of the first pylon at Karnak Temple, and an unfinished pyramid dates back to the old kingdom of Egypt History.
