    Default Docu: Egypt's Great Pyramid: The New Evidence

    Documentary shedding light on a fresh discovery at the foot of Egypt's Great Pyramid, which may explain how the ancient Egyptians were capable of building such a vast structure without the aid of computers of complex machinery. At the base of the monument, archaeologists have uncovered a relic of Khufu, the pharaoh whose remains were interred in the Great Pyramid. What they found was a ceremonial boat, laid out in `flat-pack' form, which may prove to be the key in explaining the crucial role ships and water played in the pyramids' construction

    The mummy of all mysteries...solved: Archaeologists uncover secrets of how mankind pulled off one of its most awesome miracles - the Great Pyramid of Giza

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...iza-built.html

    It has for centuries been one of the world’s greatest enigmas: how a Bronze Age society with little in the way of technology created Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza – the oldest and only survivor of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

    Now archaeologists have discovered fascinating proof that shows how the Egyptians transported 2½-ton blocks of limestone and granite from 500 miles away to build the tomb of Pharaoh Khufu in about 2,600 BC.

    At 481ft tall, it is the biggest of all the pyramids and was, until the Middle Ages, the largest man-made structure on Earth. Now the discovery of an ancient papyrus, a ceremonial boat and an ingenious system of waterworks have shed light on the infrastructure created by the builders.

    This may be new evidence, but it doesn't solve the puzzle of how they built the damned thing. Was anyone ever in doubt that they used boats? No, the question is: how did they stack those stones, all the way to the top!

    I have found this website that deals in a very detailed way with how the pyramids might have been built. It's in German.
