Experience Nubia's insight:

Notions of pharaonic burial as the only 'reasonable' explanation combine with national sentiment for claimed ownership. Against this consensus are theories that may sound airy and vague, concerning some unknown builders using methods lost forever in the mists of prehistory. - See more at: http://promienie.net/index.php/blog-categories/archeology-history/item/11-geodetics-and-science-of-ancient-egypt#sthash.c6W31EwY.dpuf

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!.

Archaeologists working near the ancient settlement of Edfu, in southern Egypt, have uncovered a step pyramid that dates back about 4,600 years, predating the Great Pyramid of Giza by at least a few decades.

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.
