Building that Great Pyramid.
Materials and workforce needed to build the Great pyramid as said by several experts.
A construction management study (testing) carried out by the firm Daniel, Mann, Johnson, & Mendenhall in association with Mark Lehner and other
Egyptologists, estimates that the total project required an average workforce of 14,567 people and a peak workforce of 40,000.
The Egyptologists' calculations suggest the workforce could have sustained a rate of 180 blocks per hour (3 blocks/minute) with ten hour work days
for putting each individual block in place.
They derived these estimates from construction projects that did not use modern machinery.
Without the use of pulleys, wheels, or iron tools, they surmise the Great Pyramid was completed from start to finish in approximately 10 years.
So, some 50 years after making simple mastaba’s made of mud-bricks or stone, they build one of the greatest monuments on Earth, and they did it this
way as claimed by mainstream Egyptologists.
and they have done that without the use of pulleys, wheels, or iron tools
These are the tools they used.
Copper slabbing saws
Copper coring drills
Stone Vessel Making
Composition and development of ancient Egyptian tools
Just follow the numbers.
Some 15.000 to 40.000 people
, needed to build the Great pyramid in about 10 years
A workforce that have sustained a rate of 180 blocks per hour (3 blocks/minute)
with ten hour work days for putting each
individual block in place.
Take a real good look at this, 180 blocks per hour (3 blocks per minute) three blocks of 1.5 to 4 tons per minute, for ten ours a day,
week after week, month after month and year after year.
With a number of blocks used in construction with an average above 2.3 million
as most sources agrees.
With the average weight of core blocks about 1.5 to 4 tons each
High quality limestone was used for the outer casing, with some of the blocks weighing up to 15 tonnes
. This limestone came from
Tura, about 14 km away
on the other side of the Nile.
Granite quarried nearly 800 km
away in Aswan with blocks weighing as much as 60-80 tonnes
, was used for
the King's Chamber and relieving chambers.
Also don’t forget the amount of work required to cut and fit all these casing stones and then cover the entire pyramid with them up to
a height of about 480 feet
just boggles the mind.
And don’t forget the four amazing shafts
, when were they made in the stone blocks?
Before the blocks where placed, or when putting each individual block in place?
Both methods must be extremely difficult for the fact of exact alignment.
That must have cost some time?
