There are 138 pyramids discovered in Egypt as of 2008. Mst were built as tombs for the country's Pharaohs and their consorts during the Old and Middle Kingdom periods.
The earliest known Egyptian pyramids are found at Saqqara, northwest of Memphis. The earliest among these is the Pyramid of Djoser (constructed 2630 BCE–2611 BCE) which was built during the third dynasty. This pyramid and its surrounding complex were designed by the architect Imhotep, and are generally considered to be the world's oldest monumental structures constructed of dressed masonry.
The estimate of the number of workers it took to build the pyramids have a wide range from a few thousand, twenty thousand, and up to 100,000!
Here's the whole thing.
Pharo watching his future tomb be built before him.
I bet he doesn't like his job, not that you can call slavery a job :P
Beyond the brick:
This is probably going to be my last entry, unless my team needs antmore done. I have certainly done better than last year, and I thank the judges for their commitment to the Mocathalon! Thanks :)
