Archaeologists Think They Know How The Pyramids In Egypt Were Built

I still believe that aliens helped the ancient Egyptians build the Great Pyramid of Giza way back in 2600BC, but archaeologists have an other idea.

While the archaeologist community already knew that the rock used to build the pyramids in Egypt were extracted eight miles away in Tura, and that granite used in the structure was quarried 533 miles away in Aswan, what was not known is how in the hell those Egyptians actually transported over 170,000 tons of limestone to Giza for construction. Well, now they think they know.

The discovery of an ancient scroll of papyrus, a ceremonial boat and a network of waterways have led archaeologists to believe that thousands of Egyptians transported all that heavy material along the River Nile in wooden boats built with planks and ropes.
