Who Built the Pyramids? Not slaves. Archaeologist Mark Lehner, digging deeper, discovers a city of privileged workers. The pyramids and the Great Sphinx rise inexplicably from the desert at Giza, relics of a vanished culture. They dwarf the approaching sprawl of modern Cairo, a city of 16 million. The largest pyramid, built for the Pharaoh Khufu around 2530 . and intended to last an eternity, was until early in the twentieth century the biggest building on the planet. To raise it, laborers moved into position six and a half million tons of stone-some in blocks as large as nine tons-with nothing but wood and rope.

The pyramids are believed to have been built around 2500 . Though this sounds like a million years ago, there were other civilizations around Anatolia and Mesopotamia. The heights of those pyramids were variable. For instance, the Khufu pyramid inside Giza is 140 meters long. Each pharaoh wanted to surpass the rulers who came before them. This is the reason why the pyramids grew bigger and bigger. Are pyramids unique? earthnworld. The pyramids also strongly resemble the Tumulus graves that were built by Phrygians. These tumuluses were not built over the ground but the idea behind them was similar. How were those heavy stones made? ww. -files.

Who Built the Pyramids? Herodotus claimed that construction of the Great Pyramid-today calculated at over six million tons of stone-was carried out using slave labor. It is now known this building was undertaken, in fact, by paid Egyptian laborers. The notion that Egyptian monuments were built by slaves-such as the plight of the Hebrew slaves recounted in the biblical book of Exodus-seems to have had currency in the ancient world.

This is why there are similar structures all over the world. They were not built by the same people. The Egyptian pyramids, and there are hundreds of them, not just the three mainly seen, were built over a series of centuries in the third century BCE. The central and south American pyramids were built thousands of years later by people with no knowledge of Egypt. Other than the basic shape, the Egyptian pyramids (above) don’t really look like the American ones (below)
