We dont need no stinkin wheels



The new evidence shows that thousands of laborers transported 170,000 tons of limestone along the River Nile in wooden boats built with planks and rope.

The 2.5-ton blocks were ferried through a system of specially designed canals before arriving at an inland port built just yards away from the base of the Great Pyramid.

The papyrus scroll is the only firsthand record of how the pyramid was built, and was written by an overseer named Merer.


Pretty exciting news. They dug canals instead of roads. Boats instead of wagons.
Pretty brilliant if not overly complicated.


If they start excavation on the ancient canal system i think the greatest discoveries still lay ahead

A YouTube video with a robot voice is not evidence. Canals do seem plausible, and certainly the granite would have come down the Nile, but the conventional evidence is the use of wet sand and pulled sledges.

Evidence of canals should be easy to establish as these may have been lined to prevent water loss, much as the canal system in the UK and elsewhere is lined.

Limestone blocks, numbering in the millions, enclose the pyramid, but
is a minor feat, the transport of them to the pyramid construction site,
compared to that of elevating granite blocks from Aswan, many meters
above the foundation, fitting so perfectly.

This story seems to fit the telling of the "Land of the Pharaohs".
Which movie I enjoy because of James Robertson Justice. In the
movie you see the quarrys and the "Unfinished Pyramid" as props.

It's so funny how things are taken a strict "evidence" when they fit the mainstream theories but if it doesn't it's easily dismissed.

The picture could have been an attempt to create another pyramid and certainly doesn't explain everything - like how they were raised and fit together.

...Phffft.
You can prove anything with facts.

I prefer the mystery.

Is that like an ancient Egyptian "yo momma" joke?

The "big deal" is that they found the canals and a flippin inland port right next to the pyramid complex

i remember this being the case when i was a kid learning about egypt. i even remember seeing them rebuild one of the boats from reeds and rope to see if it would work with a scale size block in a documentary years ago. i also remember this being the same theory for how the large granite blocks were transported to the site. now if only they would move that one block in the pyramid that would prove whether or not there is a spiral ramp inside the pyramids to get those blocks up the rest of the 2/3rds.

Like I said, evidence should be easy to find if there was a canal network, but thanks for expanding the OP. There is also a theory of a "water shaft" between the Nile and the building site - this was essentially a single line canal. However, the conventional theory remains the use of wet sand and not wheels as per your OP link text.

The fact is that they are all theories.

The largest pyramid ever built, it incorporates about 2.3 million stone blocks, weighing an average of 2.5 to 15 tons each. It is estimated that the workers would have had to set a block every two and a half minutes over a 20 year period......excuse me but, it must have taken longer or it's complete bs? Oh, and don't forget it aligned north-south with an accuracy of up to 0.05 degrees.

As theories go, it's at least plausible.

Can NOBODY READ??
they found the canals, boats, port at the foot of the pyramid, and a CONTEMPORARY FIRST HAND WRITTEN ACCOUNT OF HOW THEY DID IT.

Seriously people, cmon!
