Extractions: Pyramids: The Inside Story Part 1: The Large Stones We certainly know that the Pyramids existed because they're still with us. Rising out of the desert sands, the Pyramids of Egypt stand as a monument to the skill and determination of the Egyptian pharaohs and their ability to get thousands of people to do hard labor for generations. Huge blocks of rock were cut from places many miles away and taken by boat to Giza and other places where pyramids were being built. The slaves used a series of logs rolling on the ground to move the giant stones. Then, they put them in place as parts of a pyramid.

The pyramids which are much smaller than the ones at Giza show us how religious views changed after the 4th dynasty. The solar religion of Heliopolis became predominant. The temples became bigger and even a new type of temple was constructed: The solar sanctuary. It represented the pharaoh's close connection to Re, the sun-god.

Extractions: An Introduction to Ancient Egypt Part 4: The Pyramids How the ancient Egyptians got those heavy stones so high in the air to put on top of the Pyramids is still a mystery. But they did it. Huge blocks of rock were cut from places many miles away and taken by boat to Giza and other places where pyramids were being built. The slaves used a series of logs rolling on the ground to move the giant stones. Then, they put them in place as parts of a pyramid. The first pyramids were called "Step Pyramids" because they looked like giant steps. The pyramids we most recognize today, the smooth ones, were built later. Why were these pyramids built? The pharaohs wanted to use them as tombs. The Egyptian people had a strong belief in the afterlife. They believed that life here on Earth was just a stage in a long journey. They believed that the spirit continued on after the body died. That's why you can find so many earthly things in the tombs of the times. The pharaohs were buried with gold, jewelry, and other goods that they would find familiar in the afterlife. The tombs were also decorated with the names of the pharaohs and pictures and messages wishing them well. These pictures were believed to give the pharaoh whatever was in the picture. To make sure the pharaohs made it to the afterlife, the people made them into mummies.

Extractions: Monday, May 27 2002 One of the sights that some ancient and modern Israelites both have seen are the pyramids of Egypt. They stood at the time when Jacob and his family (see Children of Jacob ) first went down to Egypt to escape the famine, they were well-known to Moses and Aaron at the time of the Exodus over 4 centuries later, and they are a very well-known world landmark today. They have withstood the passage of the ages. The pyramids are the most ancient of the old (pagan) Seven Wonders of The World. The others were the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, Artemision at Ephesus, Colossus of Rhodes, the Olympian Zeus Statue by Phidias and Pharos at Alexandria. The pyramids are the only one of the seven still in substantial existence in modern times. There are numerous other pyramids located throughout Egypt, but the best known are found west of The Nile River along a 40 mile area of the Nile Valley near ancient Memphis . The three great pyramids at Giza are the most famous of all. They are believed to have been constructed during the Old Kingdom (see The Ancient Egyptians ) which existed from about 2600-2100 B.C. - approximately 4,100 to 4,600 years ago, over 700 years before the Exodus of the Israelites. The pyramids were already very old when the Israelites first arrived in Egypt.

There 110 pyramids currently known in Egypt, many in a state of great disrepair and almost unrecognisable. Some were built as burial places for kings and others for queens. A pyramid also may have represented a stairway for the king to ascend to the heavens. Another possibility is that it was symbolic of the primeval mound on which the sun god/creator was born. How the Egyptians managed the complex organisation of labour and the physical movement of large stone blocks is still a matter for debate. Pyramid construction may have involved ramps being erected around the pyramid. Blocks of stone would have been pulled up on sledges and the ramps dismantled later. It is believed that most of the labour for the construction of the pyramids would have come from farmers who were available during the inundation season when the Nile River flooded and farmland was underwater. It would also have been an ideal time for the transportation by boat of large stone blocks from their quarries to the pyramid sites. The earliest pyramid was the Step Pyramid of king Djoser of the Old Kingdom's 3rd Dynasty over 4,600 years ago. The pyramid (

HOME Temples and Tombs Pyramids of Giza Thebes Valley of the Kings A journey along the Nile The waters of the mighty Nile allowed the otherwise dry land of Egypt to become a cradle for one of the world's greatest ancient civilizations. From the start of the Old Kingdom around 2686 BC, a great era of rule by pharaohs of more than 30 family dynasties continued almost unbroken for nearly 3000 years. After the glorious New Kingdom, the age of the Egyptian pharaohs ended with decline and rule by the Ptolemies. Today, we can travel along the Nile and explore a succession of old temples and tombs that are testimonies to the remarkable achievements of the people of ancient Egypt. The Old Kingdom: AGE OF THE PYRAMIDS The ancient Egyptian civilization of the Nile Valley came of age under Old Kingdom rulers of dynasties 3 to 6. Their greatest legacies are the huge Giza Pyramids, the results of a spectacular program of pyramid building. The Pyramids of Giza epitomize ancient Egypt, but they were the results of a short period of pyramid building during the Old Kingdom.

It is located in the valley of the same name 30 miles north of Mexico City. It used to be a thriving city and ceremonial center that predated the Aztecs by several centuries. Most likely it was Mexico's biggest ancient city at its peak and the sixth largest city in the world in AD 600. Teotihuacan began declining sharply around 650 AD, and was almost completely abandoned around 750 AD. No one knows why. At its peak around 500-600 A.D., Teotihuacan contained perhaps 200,000 people. It was a well planned city covering nearly eight square miles and larger and more advanced than any European city of the time. Its civilization was contemporary with that of ancient Rome , and lasted longer - more than 500 years. There is one very peculiar thing about the city;

Voyages of the Pyramid Builders: The True Origins of the Pyramids from Lost Egypt to Ancient America Is it a mere coincidence that pyramids are found across our globe? Did cultures ranging across vast spaces in geography and time, such as the ancient Egyptians; early Buddhists; the Maya, Inca, Toltec, and Aztec civilizations of the Americas; the Celts of the British Isles; and even the Mississippi Indians of pre-Columbian Illinois, simply dream the same dreams and envision the same structures? Scientist and tenured university professor Robert M. Schoch-one of the world's preeminent geologists in recasting the date of the Great Sphinx-believes otherwise. In this dramatic and meticulously reasoned book, Schoch, like anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl in his classic Kon-Tiki, argues that ancient cultures traveled great distances by sea. Indeed, he believes that primeval sailors traveled from the Eastern continent, primarily Southeast Asia, and spread the idea of pyramids across the Earth, involving the human species in a far greater degree of contact and exchange than experts have previously thought possible.

Extractions: Up The ancient Egyptians built their tombs on the west side of the Nile River and their temples on the east. This practice corresponded to the rise and setting of the sun which represented the cycle of life itself. The east signified rebirth and the west signified death. With the tombs on the west or left bank, the spirits of the dead would be ready to journey into the cycle of life. The Egyptians believed strongly in the afterlife and made complete preparation for this journey. The three pyramids are actually tombs of three pharaohs of the Old Kingdom. In its most common form, a pyramid is a massive stone or brick structure with a square base and four sloping triangular sides that meet in a point at the top. Pyramids have been built by different peoples at various times in history. Probably the best-known pyramids are those of ancient Egypt, which were built to protect the tombs of rulers or other important persons. Pyramids were also built as platforms for temples by pre-Columbian civilizations in Central and South America. Still other pyramids exist in Sudan, Southwest Asia, and Greece. In the 26th century BC, as Egyptian civilization was reaching its height, three kings Khufu, his son Khafre, and his grandson Menkure ordered the construction of three huge pyramids that would serve as their tombs. The first of these, the Great Pyramid, is the largest ever built. It stands with the other two pyramids and the Great Sphinx in a cluster near the town of Giza.
