Which were built using slave labor? Pyramid, Burj Dubai, Barad Dur...

There's no archeological evidence to suggest slave labor was used to build the pyramids. More evidence suggests paid laborers.

The ancient Greek historian Herodotus once described the pyramid builders as slaves, creating what Egyptologists say is a myth later propagated by Hollywood films.

Graves of the pyramid builders were first discovered in the area in 1990 when a tourist on horseback stumbled over a wall that later proved to be a tomb. Egypt's archaeology chief Zahi Hawass said that discovery and the latest finds last week show that the workers were paid laborers, rather than the slaves of popular imagination.

Dorothy Resig, an editor of Biblical Archaeology Review in Washington D.C., said the idea probably arose from the Old Testament Book of Exodus, which says: "So the Egyptians enslaved the children of Israel with backbreaking labor" and the Pharaoh put them to work to build buildings, but those testaments and their construction are separated by centuries.

Hey there, I would like to share this on From Quarks to Quasars, saying something like, "Think the pyramids are large? Check out this comparison of the world's tallest buildings.

(the last one is a joke, obviously)."

Would that be cool with you provided that I link back to this page?

Thanks much,
Jolene

There are problems with towers thousands of feet tall, structural, plumbing,.... and perhaps the One Ring supplied the power to hold that tower of Barad-Dur up. Once that ring was destroyed, what a CRASH there must have been !!

When the WTC fell-and I saw it fall ! From my prep-room window !! I felt that no more skyscrapers would be built ,but be replaced by subterranean complexes.

Lugburz was a damned big structure! Yeow.

No wonder it took Sauron six hundred years to build it...

They need to build Barad Dur in real life, complete with a big holographic eye.

They are getting close ! I see the tower from my bus commute near its end, and, if I crane my neck, and are in the right hand seat, on the way home near the start.

Glad you enjoy it. To the best of our research, the height is accurate- it took us by surprise as well.

At least Barad-dur wasn't built on loan like Burj Dubai.
