Egyptology: Engineering Secrets Of King Khufu’s Great Pyramid Of Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the largest pyramid ever built and is a staple of Egyptian pyramid architecture. It was built to protect the tomb of King Khufu and was the first-ever true pyramid, due to its perfect shape and extraordinary features.

The entrance of the tomb is located 24 feet off centre and even if trespassers found it, a pulley system of ropes 130 feet above the passage dropped 3 enormous granite slabs to seal the burial chamber entrance. Topped with a layer of white limestone, The Great Pyramid was and is a symbol of the Pharaoh’s reputation and respect. Now, explorers are eagerly searching the pyramid for clues about the life and death of the great King Khufu.
