IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT MORE THAN TWO MILLION LIMESTONES WERE USED TO BUILD EACH PYRAMID —– AND EACH STONE WEIGHS ABOUT TWO AND HALF TONS

THAT SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF STONES, AND TWO AND A HALF TONS IS VERY BIG. BUT CAN WE REALLY SEE HOW BIG IT IS UNLESS WE HAVE A POINT OF REFERENCE?

More from Egypt soon
