Egyptian pyramids were not built by slaves but by workers.
Archaeologists came to this conclusion in Egypt, after being close to the tombs of the most famous pyramid of Cheops, reporting that workers were involved in building it. The findings are extremely important since the current theory is that the pyramids were built by slave labor.
The logic of the experts is this: if slaves were involved in the works, then the Egyptian rulers would hardly give their salute to bury them in graves near the pyramid and themselves.
Scientists also believe that no more than 10 thousand workers built the Great Pyramid.
The Egyptian Council on antiquity suggests that these people were fully insured. According to archaeologists, they were generously fed, as wealthy families from the Delta were sent daily 21 bulls and 23 sheep.
Tombs of the workers are from the time of the Fourth Dynasty and are situated in the shadow of the Great Pyramid.See more
