Rowena ButedHIST1014's curator insight, February 8, 1:22 AM

This article is actually an image of a brief description about the pyramids and how they were built. I am sure that i am not the only person with the impression that slaves or some type of prisoners were used to build the pyramids I actually learned that pyramids were used to ascend the dead to heaven when mummified in the tombs within the pyramids!.

These types of pyramids were already known and texts attest to their existence as well, but this pyramid at Edfu has never been excavated before now.
