Tombs suggest pyramids not built by slaves.

These tombs were built beside the king's pyramid, which indicates that these people were not by any means slaves," Zahi Hawass, the chief archaeologist heading the Egyptian excavation team, said in a statement.

"If they were slaves, they would not have been able to build their tombs beside their king's."

An interesting find by a horse indeed! This adds more to the rich tapestry that is the culture of the ancient Egyptians.No doubt the Egyptians had slaves,as reliefs on the temples and tombs clearly show.But perhaps this goes to show that perhaps this was deemed a sacred duty by the populous and was an act of deification in itself?

Archeologists long thought that the Pyramids were built by slaves.
They discovered (through excavation of buildings I believe) that those were actually built by well-paid workmen.

Do you care to show any proof of Egyptians at that time having slaves?

I can't remember which jewish text pretended that the Jews were slaves there, which led to their Exodus. This chapter in the Bible tells a very different story (basically they got thrown out, read the story, very telling)

On the subject, a french PhD, Dr Davidovits, has an interesting theory on how they built these huge monuments, very interesting.

I thought they figured that one out years ago?

Maybe it's only being accepted by the mainstream now because Hawass "The Great" has spoken.

Maybe he's starting to realise the official story of the pyramids is starting to smell a bit by more of the public.

That's interesting for Hawass to say that they weren't built by slaves. This is the second time in recent months he's spoken the complete opposite of academic theory regarding Giza. The last thing he said was that kufu's actual tomb hasn't been found yet and still might be revealed in the great pyramid some time soon. Is there anything else he's said recently that has been odd? ..... something is afoot...
