The Pyramids of Giza

Did you know that the Pyramids of Giza were built by the ancient Egyptians during the Old Kingdom period, specifically during the 26th century BCE? The exact methods used to construct the pyramids are still debated by historians and archaeologists, but it is believed that the pyramids were built by a large workforce of skilled workers using simple tools and techniques such as ramps and levers to move the enormous blocks of stone into place. The three main pyramids at Giza were built for the pharaohs Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, and they remain some of the most impressive and iconic structures of the ancient world.
