This Documentary Shows How to Build The Great Pyramid of Giza Using Ancient Tech

Building the Great Pyramid: This video shows how one of Egypt's most stunning pyramids may have been built using ancient technology.

Have you ever wondered why Pyramids suddenly stopped being built? Civilizations all around the globe erected the majestic structures for millennia.

Pyramids are not native to Egypt.

There are hundreds of Pyramids in other parts of the world, including South, Central, and North America, as well as China and even Europe.

Some of them are massive, like the Pyramid of Cholula, while other pyramids are small and are barely visible today.

Nonetheless, there was a time in history when our ancestors were utterly hypnotized and taken over by a pyramid-building era.

The exact blueprints of the Great Pyramid of Giza have never been found. We also have very little knowledge of how the ancients managed to build such a structure.

Despite this, we do know the pyramid consists of an estimated 2.3 million blocks, most of which are thought to have originated from quarries located near the construction site.

Furthermore, experts estimate that as many as 5.5 million tons of limestone8,000 tons of granite (imported from Aswan), and 500,000 tons of mortar were used in the construction of the Great Pyramid.

At nearly 140 meters high, it is estimated that the Great Pyramid of Giza was finished around 2560 BC.

It remained the tallest building on the surface of the planet until the Lincoln Cathedral was completed during the medieval era, at 160 meters in height.

So let’s say we wanted to build a great pyramid today.

What would we need? And how much would it cost?

Could we even accomplish something like that?

Was it Aliens?

No aliens involved. At least not yet.

As noted by Live Science, even with the help of cranes, helicopters, tractors, and trucks at our disposal, it would be tough to construct the Great Pyramid of Giza today.

If the pyramid were built from the inside out, via a spiraling internal ramp, it would cost us more than $5 Billion to build the structure.

The ancient Egyptians did it in 20 years, according to their legends.

Just how this was accomplished by the ancient remains a profound mystery. They did not have cranes, helicopters, tractors, and trucks at their disposal, yet somehow, they managed to build a pyramid consisting of 2.3 million stones weighing nearly 3 tons each for a total mass of 6.5 million tons.

If the pyramid was really built in 20 years, it means that a block of stone had to have been moved into its exact position approximately every 5 minutes of each day and night.

Created with love for the passionately Curious. was created with two words in mind: Curious and Cosmos. See what we did there? Curious: /ˈkjʊərɪəs/ eager to know or learn something. Something strange; unusual. Cosmos /ˈkɒzmɒs/ the universe seen as a well-ordered whole. A system of thought. You could say that Curiosmos is the Cosmos for the curious reader.
