The very first pyramids are in Sakarya, this is the famous step pyramid. Historians do not doubt, that it was built in several stages, first made a small Mastaba in the form of a trapezoid and then increased in size and shape of the pyramid and on the South side of the clearly visible stages we’ll look at the same pyramid from the other East side

This section of masonry is strictly different from what is on the main pyramid here is very flat rectangular blocks carefully stacked without mortar and slightly above normal backfill fine crushed stone mortar ,clay and the fact that at hand isn’t it strange from a quality construction at a high level suddenly came to the most primitive methods? this suggests that the builders of the Pharaoh did not lose their skills and just not have them …But there was a more ancient building which was already partially destroyed. builders paleino collected from fallen blocks are quickly ended and then the workers began to build as best they could. clay mortar was laid a small, roughly worked stones .
