The Pyramids of Egypt are as fascinating as they are breathtaking. Although there is a lot of speculation and rumor about the building of the pyramids, Egyptologists have uncovered an impressive amount of archaeological evidence to explain the mechanics of the building and function of these ancient monuments.
