    Default Egyptian pyramids

    Hi every one, especial hi to Anglika.
    This is an essay about how egyptian pyrmaids were built, I wonder if I can call it essay because it's too short .

    This essay mainly for using speculating in the past( should've , could've, etc...).

    here is the writing, and I'm waiting to hear from you.
    -----------
    Egyptian pyramids are considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World; yet, how they were built? It remains a mystery. Archeologists say that the early Egyptian constructed these pyramids between 2030 and 1640 B.C. Under the empire of Pharaoh, who dominated Egypt at that time. A huge stone and a very strong manpower could’ve been used to build them.

    The question is, how could a mere human have moved such a huge stones, Each stone has an average weight of 2.5 tons, without any modern tools? It must have been a smart way for doing that, or they may have developed a sort of technology! Archaeologists also say that the stones could’ve been formed during the construction’s process. A mixed of clay and specific solution must’ve been used to form stones.

    Whether they were built by human’s hand or by using sort of techniques, pyramids are one of achievements of the ancient people that mystified modern scientists.

    Egyptian pyramids are considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World; yet how they were built? It remains a mystery. Archeologists say that the early Egyptian constructed these pyramids between 2030 and 1640 B.C.[The four Great Pyramids were constructed between 2600 and 2400 BC.] Under the empire of Pharaoh, who dominated Egypt at that time.[This is not clear enough - which Pharoahs?]A huge stone [One large stone?]and a very strong manpower couldíve been used to build them.

    The question is how could a mere human [One man?] have moved such a huge stones, each of which has an average weight of 2.5 tons, without any modern tools? It must have been a smart way for doing that, or they may have developed a sort of technology! Archaeologists also say that the stones couldíve been formed during the constructionís process. A mixed of clay and specific solution mustíve been used to form stones.

    Whether they were built by humanís hand or by using sort of techniques, pyramids are one of achievements of the ancient people that mystified modern scientists.

    Some work needed!

    Egyptian pyramids are considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World, yet how they were built? It remains a mystery. Archeologists say that the early Egyptian constructed these pyramids around 4500 years ago. There are more than eighty pyramids in different sizes. Pyramids werenít built at the same time. However, it took them generations to build such gigantic structures. For instance, the first pyramid was built called the Step pyramid, which is built for Pharaoh Djoser (3d density). The great pyramid was built for the Pharaoh Kkufu (4th density). However, huge stones and a very strong manpower couldíve been used to build them.

    The question is how could mere humans have moved such a huge stones, each of which has an average weight of 2.5 tons, without any modern tools? There must have been a smart way for doing that, or they may have developed sort of technology! One of the ways has been speculated is that the pyramidís builders used a ramp to help them accomplishing the structure. This ramp was built alongside the pyramid. Supplies were transferred over the ramp. Whenever the pyramid got higher they would also raise the ramp. This ramp was demolished When the pyramid had been done because no longer need for it. Archaeologists also say that the stones couldíve been formed during the constructionís process. A mixed of clay and specific solution might have been used to form stones.

    Whether they were built by humansí hand or by using kid of techniques, the pyramids are one of achievements of the ancient people that mystify the modern scientist.

    I assume that the pyramids were built by humans. (There is no evidence to the contrary.) Any mystrery about their construction is due to the absence of written records.

    What kind of research did you do?
