What is the internal structure of the pyramids of Ancient Egypt?
It always seemed to me that the pyramids of Egypt were hollow inside, but it was not so. Inside the pyramid are several corridors, but for the most part not horizontal, but, as it were, diagonal. A very strange decision.
I, nevertheless, tend to think that, firstly, it was not the Egyptians who built it, and secondly, the pyramids were not for the pharaohs, that is, they were not originally tombs.
In the confirmation I want to provide video material that I advise to view to everyone!
Who will be interested in there are also 5 and 6 episodes, you will find on the U-tube. The Forbidden History is a series of films not only about Ancient Egypt, but also many other things. After watching these films, you change your mind about ancient history in general.
To this day, after thousands of years, the most mysterious structures of antiquity have survived - the Egyptian pyramids. Not only the method of building these gigantic structures remains a secret, but there is always talk that it is wrong to consider the pyramids only tombs, because in many of them no burials were found. What are the pyramids so amazing for humanity? I will try to tell you about one of them, the most famous - the Cheops pyramid. In 2575-2551. BC Pharaoh Sneferu ruled Egypt. He had a son, Cheops, who, unlike his father, had a very oppressive character, many believe that he was a tyrant. I am not talking about these qualities of him in vain, because apparently it was they who helped him to carry out his plans and build the well-known pyramid of Cheops. It is said that 5 such cathedrals as St Paul's Cathedral in London could have been placed inside this pyramid. And the height is 54,2 m. above the Statue of Liberty. At the very heart of the pyramid is a burial chamber, although it was originally planned under the base of the pyramid. When our contemporaries first decided to enter the pyramid in 1989, they broke through the entrance, which leads to the camera along an inclined path. This chamber turned out to be carved into a solid rock, the workers decided to try in a different place and punched another hole, about 18m away. from the entrance, upward. So they moved on, dismantling the masonry and then knocking out another burial chamber. They also failed to finish it. And finally, they reached the pharaoh's chamber, trimmed with red granite, which had been brought here hundreds of kilometers away. There, against one of the walls, stood a sarcophagus with the body of the pharaoh. True, then it disappeared and the sarcophagus is now empty. Here's what I know about the interior of the pyramid. What has been considered one of the wonders of the World since ancient times is now known to every schoolchild.
