How is the pryramid constructed?
There are many unresolved hypotheses and arguments about pyramid construction techniques, as well as uncertainty about the type of labor used at the time. Most of the construction hypotheses based on the belief that large stones were first carved or hewn from the quarry with a stone chisel, and then the stones dragged and lifted into position. However, there are differences of opinion, particularly with regard to the methods used to move them. and placing the stones used in the construction of the pyramids.
After that, years after a series of events that occurred the Greeks believed that the pyramids must have been built by hard workers. However, archaeologists now believe that the Great Pyramid of Giza bulding process by tens of thousands of skilled workers who camped near the pyramid. Then, they worked to earn a salary or as a form of payment of taxes until the construction of the pyramids was completed. This refers to the graves of workers discovered in 1990 by archaeologists Zahi Hawass and Mark Lehner. Lastly, one theory states that the craftsmen or workers used the help of the Nile River to help move the stones towards a location closer to the pyramid construction.
