Ancient Egypt stunner: Possible ramp used to build Great Pyramid Found

The French Institute of Oriental Archeology (IFAO) in Cairo is one of the largest French research centers under the Ministry…

Archaeologists may have solved one of the most modern greatest mysteries-they think they might have discovered how the Great Pyramid in Giza was built 4,500 years ago in Ancient Egypt.

According to LiveScience, archaeologists can have dug systems that are responsible for pulling the rocks up a slope on Hatnub, an old alabaster board. The system could have been used to transport these stones, according to archaeologists at the French Institute of Oriental Archeology. And it may have been used to the construction of the Great Pyramid, which consists of 2.3 million limestone and granite blocks, with an average weight of 2.5 tons.

“This system consists of a central ramp flanked by two staircases with many holes holes,” said Yannis Gourdon, co-director of the joint mission, LiveScience. “With a sled that carried a stone block and fastened with ropes on these wooden poles, the old Egyptians could pull the alabaster blocks out of the quarry on very steep slopes of 20 percent or more.”


In September 201

7, researchers found that the limestone used to create the Great Pyramid could have been transported by boat.

The lines were attached to the sled and facilitated an easier journey up the ramp, allowing the people to transport the heavy plates in an easier way, told Roland Enmarch, the other head of the Hatnub mission, the news.

“This kind of system has never been discovered elsewhere,” allow the Gourdon. “The study of the tool marks and the presence of two [of] Khufus inscriptions led us to the conclusion that this system remained at least to the Khufus government, the builder of the Great Pyramid of Giza.”

“As this system goes back at least to Khufus reign, it means that the ancient Egyptians at the time of Khufu knew how to move large stone blocks with very steep slopes. Therefore, they could have used it for the building [of] its pyramid, “Gourdon

At 481 meters high, the Great Pyramid is the largest of the three pyramids in Giza. It was built for Pharaoh Khufu, while the other two pyramids were built for pharaohs Khafre and Menkaure. It is unknown how long it took to build, but scientists believe it was done for a period of 10 or 20 years and ended approximately 2560 BC


Ancient Egypt continues to expose its secrets, including a “massive” building once part of Egypt’s ancient capital.

Experts discovered the building measuring 56 feet at 48 feet in the town of My Rahina , 12 miles south of Cairo. Mostafa Waziri, Secretary General of the Supreme Antique Council, said that the building is probably part of the housing block of the ancient Egyptian capital, Memphis.

Archaeologists also recently dig In an ancient Egyptian tomb dating back more than 4000 years, belongs to a priest named Kaires, the only friend of an Egyptian pharaoh than to be determined. Kaires is described as “the governor of the royal castle” and “home team home master”.

The tomb was discovered at a burial site near a pyramid at Abusir according to LiveScience.
