Undoubtedly one of the world’s most iconic structures, the Pyramids of Giza, have been part and will be part of many a future conspiracy theory amongst man.  Whatever you view, one thing is for certain when you see these magnificent structures you can only but wonder …HOW?

If you are still not convinced, let me give you some astounding facts.  At an estimated 5.9 tons, 2 million stones weighing in between 2 and 15 tons were used to construct the pyramids.  The entrance to the Great Pyramid, a massive 20-ton swivel door could be moved with one hand.  The mortar, a form of gypsum, albeit that scientists know what it is made of, they have never been able to recreate it.  The mortar is so strong that it erodes slower that the stones themselves.  The pyramids have a series of underground tunnels (a closely guarded secret) and various precision cut vents that keep the internal temperature at an average 20°C.  The pyramids were built in the diagonal so that the corners point to true north to the 10th degree.   What may also appear as a four sided structure, aerial photographs have shown slight indents making it an eight sided structure, yet another mysterious engineering anomaly.

One thing is for certain if you haven’t seen them yet, you best put them on your travel diary!
