The ancient Egyptian Pyramids such as the Pyramid of Giza is said to weigh 6.5 million tons. The massive structures of these pyramids have baffled modern day architecture and how the Egyptians could have assembled such huge rocks to build the pyramids.
Archeologists, architects and scientists have merely speculated the weight of the pyramids, but no one has placed an entire pyramid on a scale to determine its weight. Their weights were speculated from each large boulder of rock and by multiplying the number of rocks that make up the entire pyramid. So by what mystical powers or secret knowledge did the ancient Egyptians use in putting together such magnificent structures?
When one looks around Egypt the majority of the land is sand, and rocks, so the logical conclusion is, the pyramids are huge rocks, somehow carried by thousands of slaves, to build them. Here is the surprise trick of how they were built.
THE EGYPTIAN PYRAMIDS ARE WOOD COVERED BY LAYERS OF CLAY. EACH LAYER THAT APPEARS TO BE A HUGE ROCK, IS NOT A ROCK, IT IS WOOD COVERED BY CLAY. THEY ARE WOODEN BOARDS THAT ARE SO LIGHT A CHILD COULD CARRY IT, AND THEN ONE IS PLACED ON TOP OF THE OTHER USING CLAY TO HOLD THEM TOGETHER.
In ancient Egypt there is a lot of sand, but a forest of trees, and wood was most costly. It is similar to building a house today made of glass. Wood is a rare commodity in Egypt, hence during the era of the Pharaohs a house made of wood is a rare and most expensive. The Pyramids of Egypt are the same as wooden houses of today, the difference is ,the wooden boards of the pyramids are held together by clay and covered with clay.
