Egyptian Pyramids and Temples of Egypt with Maps

Egyptian Pyramids and Temples of Egypt with Maps | History | Scoop.it

 

Egyptian Pyramids and Temples of Egypt with Maps and The Eye of Horus...

 

The age of the first ancient wonders of the world began with the pyramids of Sneferu, he built three pyramids and may have had a hand in others. His pyramid at Medum began as a step pyramid and was then modified to form the first true pyramid. He built two pyramids at Dahshur one called the Bent Pyramid because its upper part has a shallower angle of inclination than the lower part.

Seneferu's Bent pyramid at Dahshur was originally planned as a true pyramid, but its geometry was altered at a point just above half its height. The angle of incline was decreased from 54º 31' 13'' to 43º 21'.

When Khufu, also known as Cheops, became pharaoh one of his first acts was to curtail the growing power of the priesthood. He "shut up all the temples and forbade sacrifices". As a priest’s living came from performing these rituals it is not surprising that Khufu was unpopular with the religious orders.

Khufu's pyramid at Giza showing the plan of passages and burial chamber.

Some believe that his pyramid at Giza was built by slaves but this is not true. One hundred thousand people worked on it for three months of each year. This was the time of the Nile's annual flood which made it impossible to farm the land and most of the population was unemployed. He provided good food and clothing for his workers and was kindly remembered in folk tales for many centuries.

Rowena ButedHIST1014's curator insight, January 24, 2014 3:55 AM

This is a very long documentary about how ancients have healed the sick and diseased. One procedure that was discussed was brought by a man named "Galen" (not exactly sure on the spelling) who was highly looked at for treating his patients. What he brought to the world was the process of bleeding continuously. They cut the vein and they would let the toxins flow out of the body itself. Another was the use of leeches that aided in areas where oxygen was low. Today, amputation would be used. But they believed that leeches would redistribute oxygen and blood to the appropriate areas! 

Cecilia Urbina's curator insight, January 24, 2014 5:24 PM

This is a very interesting and entertaining video that shows us how exactly some people were treated for their illness in the ancient history. It shows the tools that were used and how they figured out how to use those tools properly to treat patients.
