CAIRO, Dec. 15 (SEE)- In 2018, people’s imagination is still provoked when it comes to Egyptian pyramids worldwide. Millions claim that the edifice is non-Egyptian as the whole world is in confusion on how are the pyramids were built.
Archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass always say that anyone who visited Egypt and has not studied will never believe that this world wonder was built by ancient Egyptians, especially that most proposed opinions on the construction is not true.
“For example, the fable that the builders of the greatest pyramid used to work only four months a year, in times of flood. Another fable is that Pharaoh Khufu’s reign lasted only 23 years according to Toureen papyrus,” noted Hawass.
Actually, millions say that pyramids are not Egyptian as allegations assumed that stones were brought from ‘Tourah’ that is 10 kilometers away from the plateau and that their numbers is about 2.3 millions, each weighs between 2-10 tons.
Numerous books state fables of aliens and Atlantic scientists in articles that the mainstream mediate confirming that humans can not do this work!
“If we look at the assumption that workers used to work only 4 months, we will conclude that a block was transferred every second- which exceeds human capacity!,” added Hawass. “But the information unleashed when the tombs of the builders were unearthed state that workers used to work all year round and take a day off once every 10 days.”
Thus, such findings prove to the whole world that ancient Egyptians are the ones who built the pyramids, not by conscription, as the builders were buried next to the pyramids. Rationally, if they were enslaved they would have not buried with their needs in the other world as they believed.
“We made sure that this was a national project to all Egyptians; and that’s why noble families used to rule upper Egypt and the delta. They partook in building the pyramids through sending workers to contribute in construction,” elaborated Hawass.
In addition, huge blocks were found with inscriptions that states how food was transferred to workers and that kings wanted to exempt builders from taxes which manifests that this national project all Egyptians partook in it.
“What is for sure is that the one who alleged that stones counted up to 2 million pieces did not know that the base of the pyramid is formed of natural rock that levels up to more than 7 meters high, and this can be seen from the south area. That’s why I think that Pharaoh Khufu’s Pyramid do not exceed one million,” explained Hawass.
Factually, stones weigh in-between one and one and a half tons only and that the ascending road which was used to transfer the stones from the quarry to the base of the pyramid did not reach the middle of the pyramid, yet was related to the south-west of the pyramid to become a fixed road.
The south part of any pyramid in the old state had embraced side or queen pyramids, but the engineers transferred these pyramids to the eastern part to make the south part free from any buildings, in order to build an ascending road. “We have carried out excavations in the asphalt road of Pharaoh Khufu’s pyramid and discovered the remaining of this road on two sides.”
As for the existing boats, Hawass said that they were built by Pharaoh Khufu after his death and the unearthed tombs date back to the time of Pharaoh Khafra.
