Pyramids is an old history from Egypt

ancient wonders,  pyramid, Khufu, pyramids at Giza

The age of the first ancient wonders of the world began with the pyramids of Snefru , three pyramids were built and may have had something to do with the other . Your Medum pyramid began as a step pyramid and was then modified to form the first true pyramid. He built two pyramids at Dahshur one called the Bent Pyramid because its upper part has a deep as the bottom slope angle .
My Pyramid in Dahshur Bent Pyramid diagram Seneferu was originally designed as a true pyramid, but its geometry has been modified to a point just above half its height. The decreased angle of 54 ° 31 '13 '' 43 ° 21 ' .

When Khufu , also known as Cheops, became pharaoh one of his first acts was to limit the rise in power of the priesthood . Is "locked all the temples and sacrifices prohibited. " As the life of a priest came to perform these rituals , it is not surprising that Khufu was unpopular with the religious orders.

Pyramid of Giza diagram Some believe that his pyramid at Giza was built by slaves, but this is not true . One hundred thousand people have worked on this for three months a year . This was the time of the annual flooding of the Nile, making it impossible to cultivate the land and most of the population was unemployed . He provided good food and clothing for his workers and was kindly remembered in folk tales for many centuries.

There are three pyramids at Giza , each of them ever had an adjoining mortuary temple . Attached to this temple would have covered floor to a valley temple near the Nile . The 'great' pyramid itself is truly an amazing work of engineering skills - for more than four thousand years , until modern times , was the tallest building in the world .

Giza Pyramid The sides are oriented to the four cardinal points of the compass and the length of each side at the base is 755 feet ( 230.4 m). Amount to an angle of 51 52 ' to a height , originally 481 feet ( 147 m ) but nowadays 451 feet ( 138 m). It was built with an estimated 2.3 million limestone blocks weighing an average of 2.5 tons each. Although some weigh up to 16 tons. Until recently , relatively speaking , was cased in smooth limestone but this was plundered to build Cairo.

Is it conceivable that by bringing together so many people and give them a common goal of making a mountain, a national identity is forged in their hearts. Of Upper and Lower Egypt communities would come to know each other and have a common bond was evident in the object of the pyramid. If this is true , it is only because all other forms of nationalism rose war. For example England and France in the Hundred Years War and the United States through the Revolutionary War, the civil society and India.
