Egyptians were one of the most advanced civilizations in the ancient history. the amazing pyramids they built are still a mystery to the world, which are still among the seven wonders. One hundred thousand slaves tug multi-ton blocks across the desert to build these pyramids. have you ever wondered about what Egyptians really use to make these huge blocks..? history suggests that they used A complicated series of pulleys lifts each hand-cut stone into the perfect place to build pyramids. but now the history is about to be changed.
Recent theories and scientific evidence suggest that people assembled cement blocks on site to construct the exterior of the pyramids. Materials scientist Joseph Davidovits suggests a more realistic way to look at how the pyramids were built. Unconvinced of Egyptian abilities to construct and move large blocks to create the pyramids, Davidovits posits that Eqyptians molded blocks from limestone and vegetable matter available nearby. These blocks, built on site, are then used to build the pyramids. Existing only as a hypothesis, Davidovits later supported his idea using X-Ray Diffraction data, a technique common in chemistry and material science.
Scientific inquiries revolve around the “casing stones” used on the pyramids – the outer layer of polished stone. In the paper “X-Ray Analysis and X-Ray Diffraction of Casing Stones from the Pyramids of Egypt, and the Limestone of the Associated Quarries,” Davidovits looks at stones from six different sites. Through analysis, the casing stones at the sites contain air bubbles. This is stark contrast to rocks from the quarries, quarries the casing stones are typically associated with, with the quarry rock containing no bubbles. The presence of air bubbles in the casing stones supports the “cement” theory.
This sure is a possible and an obvious way to explain how Egyptians built the great pyramids and also this helps to eliminate the questions surrounding how a civilization cut and transported the massive stones from quarries.
