|If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. - J.R.R. Tolkien|
The largest pyramid is not in Egypt. It is in Mexico, about sixty miles southeast of Mexico City. The Mexican pyramid covers more than forty acres. The Great Pyramid at Giza covers only about thirteen acres.
The great pyramids of Egypt are now located three miles south of their original location due to the shifting of the earth's surface.
The largest Egyptian pyramid was built in 20 years using abut 14,000 workers.
The major Egyptian pyramids were built over a span or 200 years. Before one was finished, another one was started.
The Egyptian pyramids were not built from cut stone. The "stones" were made by pouring blocks made up of crushed limestone and a cement which is better than what we have today.
The Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt was built about 2500 BC. It remained the tallest building until 1889 when the Eiffel Tower was built.
