Presentation Description

Researcher Harry Coumnas believes that he has solved one of history’s most puzzling mystery- how the ancient Egyptians transported over 170,000 tons of limestone to build the Giza Pyramid. After studying the outskirts of Cairo, researcher Harry Coumnas and his team have revealed that the huge limestones to build the pyramid were carried on the boats. Harry and his team have unearthed an ancient papyrus scroll, remains of a boat and a network of waterways at the site of the pyramid, providing new evidence that points to how the Pyramid was built.
