Construction Of The Ancient Great Pyramid Located In Egypt Was Detailed On This Ancient Papyrus

How the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids is one of the biggest puzzles that ancient history experts have had to solve.


They are massive stone constructions created of large boulders that were quarried, carried, and grooved together before the development of the crane and the wheel, and are regarded as one of the world’s greatest architectural marvels.

The creation of the pyramids has been explained by new evidence. For more than a century, Egyptologists have been perplexed by this conundrum, but it now appears that part of the puzzle may have been solved.

For a long time, archaeologists and historians have known that the rock used to build the pyramids was removed from two locations: Tura, which is about 13 kilometers from the pyramids’ site, and Aswan, which is 533 kilometers away.

Since the actual age of the pyramids was revealed, scholars have been puzzled as to how the ancient Egyptians managed to move the rock in this manner before the invention of the wheel.

However, a recently unearthed papyrus scroll may have given an easy solution to this age-old dilemma.


The papyrus scroll is the sole firsthand account of how the current pyramids were built, and it contains the notes of an ancient Egyptian foreman called Merer.

Merer describes how the stones were removed from the quarries and transported to Giza using specially built canals in his notes.

The rock blocks were hauled by slaves who erected the spectacular megaliths to an internal port located only a few meters from the foot of the Great Pyramid.

Mark Lehner, an archaeologist who studied in Egypt and uncovered evidence of an ancient river beneath the plateau where the Great Pyramid of Giza is located, agrees with Merer’s comments.

In a new Channel 4 program titled Great Pyramid of Egypt: The New Evidence, these findings relating to the construction of the pyramids will be explored in detail.
