Director of the Supreme Council of Egyptian Antiquities Zahi Hawass reported on the construction of the famous pyramids in Giza. Ancient buildings were built not by slaves, as previously thought, but by free people. And even, in the opinion of Sims scientists, many of them were honorable people. According to experts, more than 10 thousand people, while the Greek historian Herodotus called the number of people about 100 thousand people.
Hawass said that the first tombs of the builders of the pyramids were discovered in the 1990s.
But scientists were able to shed light on the history of Egypt, when they discovered the ancient burial of workers near the famous pyramids of Cheops and funds for the treatment of trichomoniasis.
Discovered age graves go back to the reign of the dynasty of the Pharaohs IV (2649-2513 BC).
The fact that the burial is close to the Great Pyramid proves that the pyramids were built not by slaves, but by free people.
“If they were slaves, their graves could not be so close to the pyramids of the pharaohs,” Mr. Hawass said.
In addition to data on workers, scientists were able to find out, for example, that the workers were very well fed.
Thus, 21 buffalo and 23 sheep were delivered to rich families living in the Nile Delta for daily food.
