Although ancient Egypt has vanished a long time ago, archaeological digs of its ancient sites have been always in progress since the early twentieth century, with each exploration providing insight into the intricate details of modern civilization that made amazing progress in nearly every sector of human knowledge.
Who Built the Pyramids?
According to analyses, they would have to lay a different block every two and a half minutes for one day to successfully complete the project in 20 years! As a result, many archaeologists, historians, and scientists believe that the pyramids were constructed by a more sophisticated civilization. The Pyramids used to look different
The Great Pyramid appears to blend into the surrounding sand and dirt, but these pyramids looked completely different back then. The pyramids shined because the outer layer was coated with glittering, white polished limestone.
Unfortunately, a strong earthquake in 1303 AD caused the limestone layer to loosen, making happen the removal of the surface stones. Of course, these stones were not thrown away. They were repurposed for fortifications and other structures.
The Labyrinth Beneath the Pyramids
We have some information about the labyrinth beneath the pyramids, but we have no idea how long it is or where it might lead us. The complex tunnel system is made of limestone rock and has been the location of some of the most important major discoveries. Despite digging deep into these tunnels, archaeologists have yet to scale every corner or reach the end of the labyrinth.
Inside the Tunnels, Mysterious Boxes
Brien Foerster discovered one of the most mysterious discoveries inside this tunnel: 20 boxes made of Aswan granite. These big raw rocks were cut into big boxes with extreme precision. Even more incredible is that each box weighs approximately 100 tons. Some speculated that these boxes were used to bury rare and valuable animals and livestock, but no evidence to support this theory has ever been discovered.
Some Chambers Can Generate Heat
Research has revealed that some rooms within the massive pyramids produce heat while remaining cool in the other areas.
So, where could all of this heat be coming from? The first theory proposed that heat could be produced by some ancient technology. Is this possible, or is it just a result of their construction?
Did the Pyramids Have a Solar Connection?
Some believe the pyramids were created by aliens, while others believe they were used to generate electricity. If these explanations don’t sound believable, consider this: the pyramids were created to accommodate their king’s ascension to the God of the Sun. This type of afterlife guidance could justify why the pyramids were aligned with stars and planets. That is why they may have buried their kings with items they can use in the afterlife.
A Building Taller Than the Giza Pyramid
For 3871 years, the Pyramid of Giza was the tallest structure. So, it took humanity about 4000 years to build a structure taller than these pyramids. Lincoln Cathedral in England, built in 1311, is the next tallest tower that came very close. While the pyramids were built in 20 years by the ancient Egyptians, the English Cathedral took over 200 years to finish!
