At 146 meters tall and with over two and a half million blocks of stone, the Great Pyramid of Khufu has fascinated the world since its construction 4,500 years ago.

Some people believe ancient Egyptians had neither the knowledge nor the means to build such a structure, giving rise to some incredibly far-fetched theories. But recent discoveries at sites dating from the era of Khufu have shed new light on the technology available to builders at the time, as well as their country’s amazing organization. Findings from archaeological missions in 2018 and clues from various sites in Egypt will provide new insight into how the Egyptians managed to build the Great Pyramid in a quarter of a century.
