I’ve stated that to my eye the Egyptian pyramids are essentially superb casings filled with rubble.
Quite some rubble though—on the Great Pyramid the blocks average out at about two and a half tons each. Some, not quite so rubbley and made of granite are about seventy tons.
So from other scribes’ efforts on U-tube I filched these almost at random—
AND the last one below informs us that the bits in yellow aren’t blocks — they’re Ground Zero foundation bedrock carved to look like blocks. Cute.
Sadly I can’t go further with this lot at the moment, I’m reading a book devoted to the theory that the ancients built the GP of E using internal ramps. (Originality, I like it. And who knows, maybe they did? Brrrrr …)
