【整理】Ancient Egypt   by lurker

 

The Pharaoh Khufu have been brought up with pyramids. His father had been a builder on a grand scale. And from the start, Khufu set out to construct a pyramid that was perfect. Firstly, the pyramid was aligned with a  compass. The points where the North Star rose and set were divided to define true north. Then the base was leveled. Khufu's pyramid covers 13 acres and it's leveled to within just one inch.

They did this using a rectangular grid of channels in the rock which they could fill with water and any protrusion sticking out above the water could be shaved off.

Once the base was marked out on the ground level, building could begin.

This is where they cut the stones to build the pyramid. To move them, they drag them from here up a great straight main ramp up to the pyramid itself.

For the lower courses, the blocks weighed five tons or more. But as the pyramid grew, the weight of the stones reduced. In total, the workers hauled a staggering 2,300,000 stone blocks. For the first time in pyramid building, the blocks did not slope inwards, but were laid in horizontal courses. One was fitted into place every three minutes. But despite this pace, Khufu's pyramid would take 22 years to construct. Inside, the pyramid becomes a puzzle. From the entrance, a passage descends to the subterranean chamber carved out of the bedrock. It leads nowhere but leaves us with a mystery. Above, the queen's chamber is a sealed room for a statue of Khufu, representing his ka or spiritual force. From here, there is a spectacular high ceiling passage.

The grand gallery leading up to the king's burial chamber was built using a technique called cobbling. This is a simple form of arch that the Egyptians excelled at. Each stone block is progressively stepped in until it reach the top. And it has the advantage both of reducing the span that they have to bridge and of giving the room a great feeling of grandeur.

Above this, high up in the pyramid is the king's chamber, designed to be Khufu's final resting place.

It's incredible! It's incredible!

Firstly, the pyramid was a lion with the compass. The points with the North Star rose and set were divided to the fine true north. Then the base was leveled. Khufu’s pyramid covers 13 acres and its level to within just one inch. They did this using a rectangular great of channels in the rock which they could fill with water. And any perchewsion sticking up above the water could be shaved off.

Once the base was marked out of the ground level, building could begin. This is why they cut the stones to build the pyramid to move them. They drag them from here. ‘Off a great straight main ramp up to the pyramid itself.’

For the lower courses, the blocks load 5 tons or more, but as the pyramid move, the weigh to the stones reduced. In total, the workers hold a staggering 2,300,000 stone blocks. But the first time in pyramid building, the blocks did not slop in woods, but were laid in hurisumble courses. One was fisid into place every 3 minutes.
