How Were the Pyramids Built?
 
06:31
Key aspects of pyramid construction from quarry to completion. Check out Audible: http://bit.ly/AudibleVe Live show in Alabama: http://bit.ly/VeRAOI The most common misconception about the pyramids is that they were built by slaves. Recent archeological evidence suggests they were instead constructed by paid workers. Some may have performed this work as a form of tax payment for several months of the year. Skilled engineers would have planned and orchestrated the building. An estimated 10,000-20,000 people would have been working on a pyramid at any one point in time. They were well fed and provided with shelter near the pyramids. Plus their burial sites close by indicate they were respected and were not slaves. Much of the limestone was quarried from the Giza plateau itself, meaning the stones did not need to be transported far. The granite casing of Menkaure's pyramid, on the other hand, was transported from Aswan, around 600 miles, or 1000 km up the Nile.

Check out our new website for more incredible history documentaries: HD and ad-free. http://bit.ly/2O6zUsK Historian, Joann Fletcher explores the hitherto downplayed role that women took in the running of state and, indeed, in shaping every aspect of life in Ancient Egypt. Perhaps unassumed by most, the ancient Egyptians were unique in their attitude to sexual equality with women holding the title of ‘Pharaoh’ no fewer than 18 times, while there were also female doctors, tutors, prime ministers and priestesses. Focusing on women of royalty such as Pharaoh Hatshepsut and Queen Nefertari, as well as women of high profession such as Lady Peseshat, the earliest female doctor known to the world, Fletcher reveals an ancient civilization unparalleled in its sexual equality.

The Anunnaki Cannot Be Fully Understood Until You Know This EXTRAORDINARY Information

There is some really extraordinary information contained in the Sumerian texts. One of the most important Sumerian gods mentioned in these texts is the Sky Father, An, although some refer to him as “Anu.” He is mentioned in the Enuma Elish and many other creation stories. As so many people revered Anu, you cannot understand anything about the Anunnaki or the Sumerian pantheon without understanding him, and of course his offspring. One of the the big questions, amongst many, is where did An come from?
