- One of The Seven Wonders– The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only Seven Wonder still standing to this day. The structure was built between 2560-2540 BCE, and has since shrunk about 25 feet due to erosion.
- Tallest Structure for Many Years- Archeologists suggest that the pyramid was once the tallest man-made structure; that is until the Lincoln Cathedral was built over a thousand years later. Originally standing at 481 feet tall, the Great Pyramid of Giza towered over the rest of the world’s largest buildings.
- A Work of Skilled Labourers– Historians/experts now believe that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built by 20,000-30-000 skilled labourers; which may have included architects, engineers, builders, stone masons and many other craftsmen. The argument has to do with the pyramids being so perfectly aligned with Orion’s Belt (Zeta, Epsilon, and Delta), and also the near perfect construction using various materials such as limestone, which was previously used on the outer coating.
