A Video Clip That Caught My Attention

The title of this video is 'How Were Pyramids Built'

This video is about the key aspects of the construction of pyramids.  

What I have learnt in this video:

  • The pyramids were built over 4500 years ago, when Egyptians didn't have wheels or steel and the only metals available were copper and copper alloys.
  • The less far-fetched myth that is believed is that the pyramids were built by slaves though recent discoveries suggest that the builders were skilled workers and not slaves.
  • The inside of the pyramids were made out of limestone while the outside of the pyramids were made out of granite.
