Exploring around the Pyramids – Stuck in Customs

Exploring around the Pyramids

Pyramid-bulding slaves?

I was talking to an Egyptologist there and I brought up slavery during the pyramid times. He has a theory that he was able to back up on many ways that the builders were not slaves. Instead, everyone had a vested stake in the building. Since they were built to give the kings an eternity above, it’s thought that they offered to extend this eternity to the team that helped build it.

Daily Photo – Exploring around the Pyramids

I didn’t get to spend much time at the pyramids, but I decided to make hay will the sun was shining. And boy was it! A bright bluebird day for sure. But, much to my surprise, a visit here in late January was not hot at all. In fact, it was about 19/65 degrees with a light breeze. I had to wear two layers to stay warm. I did a lot of studies of people and the pyramids, and this is one of my favorites.
