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.
(the last one is a joke, obviously)."
Would that be cool with you provided that I link back to this page?
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.
No wonder it took Sauron six hundred years to build it...
Is it accurate?
