A new mystery about the pyramids unraveled

The mysterious builder of the Great Pyramids of Giza has been identified after the archeologists’ restless efforts.

The mystery was unfolded many centuries ago; however, new evidence suggested that ancient Egyptians transferred 2.5 tons of blocks 500 miles alongside with blocks of granite and limestone to build the tomb of Pharaoh Khufu in 2,600 B.C.

It has been confirmed based on the discovered materials that thousands of skilled workers have managed to transfer 170,000 tons of limestone along the Nile River through wooden boats that were attached together by ropes.

The newly unearthed material has been announced in a documentary called, “Egypt’s Great Pyramid: The New Evidence,” which reveals that other archeologists have also found a ceremonial boat that was designed for Khufu to command in the afterlife, hence providing a clear picture of how ancient Egyptians constructed vessels at the time.

In ancient Egypt, renowned and professional engineers were assigned by pharaohs to assess the construction of the great pyramids, which were built by the army and workers of the Egyptian kingdom back then, according to an article by Express.

Several materials, that have been discovered, helped reveal the potential identity of the builders of the Great Pyramid of Giza and how it was built, additionally including the discovery of ancient papyrus, ceremonial boats, and an ingenious system of waterworks.

Considered the world’s greatest man-built structure on earth until the Middle Ages, the pyramid is also said to be built using boats, based on the ancient papyrus that has been found in the seaport of Wadi al-Jarf.
