When construction project manager Chris Massey set off on a surprise trip to Egypt it seemed he was in for a relaxing time - a cruise down the Nile, a hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings, sunbathing by the Red Sea and guided tours of the most spectacular ancient structures in the world...

But wherever he looked, he saw problems with the perceived wisdom on how the pyramids, temples and tombs of the pharaohs were built:

If limestone blocks were dragged up a mud brick ramp to be placed at the top of the Great Pyramid, where is the evidence of this huge ramp? How could materials such as wooden rollers and mud bricks take the strain put on them by tons of stone? Thousands of men are supposed to have dragged the building blocks across the desert in the searing heat - how did the ancient project managers keep morale up amongst the dusty and tired workforce?

Surely there must have been an easier way? Massey looked around him and saw the greatest resource available to the Egyptians - the waters of the mighty Nile.

This engaging account is the result of Massey's pool-side ponderings, in which he gives a detailed alternative theory of how the ancient Egyptians could have used water to their advantage to make pyramid building much easier.

As someone with a background in both engineering and canal usage I find this concept both interesting and plausible; and a welcome relief from EU politics.

Une solution simple pour expliquer le levage à grande hauteur des blocs de granit de plusieurs dizaines de tonnes utilisés pour construire certaines structures internes de la pyramide de Khéops : chambres funéraires "du roi" et "de la reine", grande galerie.

How were the POLYGONAL MEGALITHIC INCA WALLS BUILT? LIKE THIS?



Polygonal walls are common across the ancient world, often in conjunction with rougher built walls above them.

A similar technique is used today to make cast paving;

Polygonal Inca walls are found worldwide, they seem to have been a speciality of the Pyramid Builders. In this video, we suggest the walls were built as a geopolymer concrete. In this case, Inca or Pre-Inca walls are often said to be Granite or Andesite, (igneous rock) but they can also be sandstone. (hardened sand) Could it be that ancient builders in fact used types of concrete, alternate recipes to today, putting quartz and other substances into their concrete mixture, in a way that today we think resembles different type of 'rock?' Must everything that is ancient be carved and everything that is modern be moulded? Look for example at Centennial Hall in Poland, built by Max Beck, or the Pantheon in Rome---Made of Concrete! Although different parts of the world have their own types of polygonal wall, some no-doubt carved out of bedrock, it is apparent that other walls, such as for instance, and especially in Peru, are in fact poured concrete. In the technique I point out in this vid, which is a possibility, each stone could in fact resemble a bag of concrete. There were vertical and horizontal wooden or stone spacers pushed into each bag as it was set, not to mention a frame to hold each bag in place, as it was poured, creating a unique shape for every single block. The product was then smoothed down, scraped down, even possibly while it was still setting. The bags were then removed, or decomposed over time between the cracks, creating this 'impossible' perfection. Of course another way to build this would be to 3-print each block an exact shape because I am not sure how else you would achieve this exact fit. The conventional idea that hard stones like this were carved by stone tools is beyond nuts. Try it and see what happens! Won't work! It's hard enough trying to PLACE each stone exactly in place, even if already carved! Just try it! No... it looks like it was already built in place and formed as it went. Also we are dealing with high altitude. How did they do it?
