The Old Kingdom

Post  Ophirkes on Mon Sep 29, 2014 6:20 pm

During the old kingdom, which lasted from 2700 BC – 2200 BC, the pharaohs were the most powerful people and it was known as the time of prosperity and splendor. At that time, not only were the people polytheistic, they also had a bureaucracy; as well as that, the king passed down through generations. The pyramids were the one of the most important things that the Egyptians ever made! Even today, three huge pyramids stand: the Khufu pyramid, the Khafre pyramid, and the Menkaure pyramid. These are the most important ones, but surrounding it, there are about 100 more little pyramids.
No one knows how the Egyptians were capable of building such great structures that stand for such a long period, at that sort of time; past. They had no technology to help with exact measurements and there was no “great” math either. This will stay a mystery for ever because even if you are a descendent from the ancient Egyptians, you can’t know. How do you think that they built these structures?

That's true, building pyramids was a really hard thing to do back then. I wonder how did the Egyptians build such grateful stuff. Your topic is nicely described, well done!
