Pyramid at Saqqara

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 .

Another interesting pyramid is in Saqqara is the pyramid of Unus. right in the middle of the Eastern side of limestone masonry laid in granite block form the country Guide States that all the stones are there the original origin as it was found. so all was initially built.but it is clear that this stone as a foreign body. he absolutely does not fit everywhere is granite and limestone. and it grooves. very similar that the pyramid was assembled from what could gather in the neighborhood and completely different material. but then it turns out that this unit is much older than the pyramid itself.

Same thing on the South side Right in an internally laying the stone with the bas-reliefs he is not here to lie but he is lying there like it was taken from another temple or ruins of the temple .And laid as conventional material moreover if you look at all the pyramid you will notice that it consists if two different parts of good masonry of large blocks in the bottom and a simple pile of small stones at the top. it seems that the pyramid was assembled not only from different blocks scattered around but generally put on the ruins of a more ancient structure very different blocks in the bottom from gravel which is above them. they do not tally with each other .

if there is still doubt all doubts, removes the corridor is possible on this access is closed and to get there you need a little bit to try and climb round a thorn and then you can get a very valuable material .Pharaoh did not build a full tomb and restored a more ancient structure .a passage in the pyramid and how low in red and is the same as in the great pyramid. Made from all large, smoothly fitted blocks on the other side too and in between some shoddy masonry of small stones and height so the person can stand tall with the reserves. here was destroyed and he just restored this part is exactly the same as was built up over the entire pyramid.

And here it is clearly seen that there was cleavage of the block and the place is filled with small rubble stone with mortar. It’s definitely not a modern restoration and the ancient. The contrast is striking. However surprising is not the fact of the repair and low quality. I don’t think. what you can accuse the workers of Pharaoh in the trash. they tried but I’m they did as best they could from a primitive society can hardly expect better results .

On the real age of the granite of the temple indicates the drain which has been preserved in the Western wall in a very dry climate of Egypt. Pharaonic times this element has no any sense. The drain needs in the rainy season, which means that the age of the temple like the famous Sphinx on which traces of erosion. No less 8000.l the Egyptians regarded him as God’s house of Usirius and if you rely on the ancient historian Manifone the age of the temple is not even 8000.l and 11 000 t all.l speaking in the temple near the pyramid 2 has the same granite block gutter with a semicircular groove. the dimensions of the stone blocks from which the temple can impress anyone. not for nothing, many doubt that such could be built in a primitive society of ancient Egypt. however, in the past repairs were done, not only the pharaohs but also an ancient civilization that however naturally because if you rely on information, a fine of Manifone the gods ruled in Egypt for thousands of years and built them design sooner or later had been ruined .

Maybe now is the time to become better acquainted with the civilization of the gods. with the methods of the ancient builders with their technology and ancient knowledge all this in the next article
