Yet another Egyptologist by the name of John Romer believed that careful planning led to the construction of the pyramids, to the point that the builders have probably drawn up an actual life-size plan.
He said, “Such a working diagram would also be used to create the pyramid’s architecture with unrivaled precision by any other means.” Romer also estimated the construction was probably 14 years from beginning to end. Although, another man took this inquiry to the next level.
Was It Really The Egyptians?
These findings could mean that the old structures were much older than originally anticipated by archeologists and that an earlier civilization could have built the pyramids.
Cannon said, “Nobody knows who was there 12,000 years ago. It had to have been done by a civilization that was more advanced than any of us.” Of course, the wild theory of the pair was quickly shot down by Egyptian authorities. This does not mean, however, that there weren’t more logical theories circulating.
Pyramid Of Power
One of his generation's most respected Egyptologists, Miroslav Verner, theorized that a hierarchy had to be established to create the pyramids. He trusted that there were probably more than 100,000 men divided into a variety of teams with different purposes.
Additionally, more divisions were made related to individual skills. The theory meant that those who built the pyramids had roles that were organized in a pyramid style. But the intricacies of the Egyptian operation still went on.
In modern times, a modest man named Mark Lehner is one of the most important people in the quest for the truth behind the pyramids. The experienced Egyptologist and his team have compiled one of the most detailed studies ever carried out with some fascinating new theories.
Lehner thinks that people were involved in the construction of the pyramids somewhere between 14,500 and 40,000. But actually, he did not realize how vital his role in this search would eventually become.
The catalyst that launched this abundance of evidence came back in 1954 when archeologist Kamal el-Mallakh led a team and discovered a boat that they thought was left for the use of Pharaoh Khufu.
The remains of the boat have been restored and scanned to determine its origins, including its wooden planks. Remarkably, the findings showed that they were sewn together. So what was the actual purpose of this ship?
