Rowena ButedHIST1014's curator insight, February 8, 2014 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!.
