Saqqara and the surrounding areas of Abusir and Dahshur suffered damage by looters during the 2011 Egyptian protests . Store rooms were broken into, but the monuments were mostly unharmed. [4] [5]

I really loved this documentary! I can't remember seeing another one on this topic speaking in such specific terms of mathematics and I can't remember another one placing so much emphasis on the absolute perfection of the building of these old monuments that cannot (or can but with a lot of effort) even be achieved today with all the modern technology. Making pretty strong case of it too in my opinion.

I find this a very interesting article, and want to believe that it is true. However, I am a bit dismayed that you have used a photograph of my artist friend's picture (Jean Luc Bozzoli) to depict the pyramid with roads etc. I don't see his name anywhere as a credit to the picture, and was wondering if you knew that he had painted it as part of a project to be built by (I think) Australia? I would appreciate a response to this. Many Thanks

Even after the woolly mammoths had vanished from most of the world, a cold and desolate island in the Arctic Ocean and now part of Russian territory, the Wrangel Island, still served as a home for these giant beasts until around 4,000 years ago. Scientists estimate that the island drifted off from the mainland about 12,000 years ago, carrying a small population of the mammoths with it. Hence, while the hunters of these mammoths, the humans, were populating the world, building sophisticated civilizations and using advanced technology to build impressive structures like the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, the last of the woolly mammoths was fighting the lonely battle for survival on the far away island of Wrangel. Today, even though mankind is unable to sustain the current diversity of species on the planet, man ironically continues to hope to genetically revive the extinct woolly mammoth by way of genetic cloning, in a controversial field known as "de-extinction".

More respectful, King Thutmose IV believed the Sphinx spoke to him when he fell asleep in its shade. He dreamed that the figure asked him to clear away the encroaching desert sands that stifled it, and in reward Thutmose IV was promised the throne of Egypt. When these events came to pass, to memorialize them, the king erected a stone marker between the Sphinx's paws. Like the pyramids, the Sphinx presents the world with a mystery to confound the ages.

Most pyramids are located near Cairo, with only one royal pyramid being located south of Cairo, at the Abydos temple complex. The pyramid at Abydos, Egypt were commissioned by Ahmose I who founded the 18th Dynasty and the New Kingdom . [14] The building of pyramids began in the Third Dynasty with the reign of King Djoser . [15] Early kings such as Snefru built several pyramids, with subsequent kings adding to the number of pyramids until the end of the Middle Kingdom.

In last decade the interest attached to the Asian region. And the main interested country for pyramid research is China . There are more than 200 pyramids in different forms and size in central China, in Xi’an and Luoyang constructed from the local clay and soil materials. The quality of construction materials are so great that even after 2000 years the pyramids have ideal form of truncated pyramids with straight edges and four sides with perfect geographical orientation. In the Chinese and North Korea border there is another kind of pyramids constructed from the stone blocks of different forms but not so huge like pyramids in Xi’an area. The total number of Chinese pyramids is not clear and there no chance to research all of them and calculate the total number.

Khafre's Pyramid, is the second largest of the ancient Egyptian Giza pyramid complex and the tomb of the fourth-dynasty pharaoh Khafre (also spelled Khafra or Chephren).
