Completed c2560 BC, the Great Pyramid stands at 147 metres tall and took over 20 years to build.
This meant it was the tallest man-made structure in the world for about 3,800 years.
It was finally outdone by Lincoln Cathedral in the 1300s. It required 2.5 million stone blocks to be cut, moved and positioned.
Some of the stones are limestone quarried from near the site, but the larger granite stones came from Aswan, over 500 miles away. The Great Pyramid – also named the Pyramid of Khufu after the fourth dynasty Pharaoh for whom it was built – sits alongside the pyramids of Menkaure and Khafre, and is perfectly aligned with the constellation of Orion. Although they are long gone, highly polished limestone blocks – known as casing stones – covered the surface of the Pyramid.
It is thought that a massive earthquake loosened many of the stones and they were taken away to build mosques in nearby Cairo. The stones reflected the Sun’s light so well that the Egyptians called the Pyramid ‘Ikhet’, meaning the ‘Glorious Light’. Were the pyramids built by the residents of Atlantis?
It was built by the people of Atlantis… or at least, that’s what German conspiracy theorists Stefan Erdmann and Dominique Goerlitz wanted you to think.
They were given access to the Great Pyramid in April 2013, which turned out to be quite a mistake.
The pair took specimens from cartouches in an attempt to prove Khufu took the credit for the structure when it was the people of Atlantis that built it.
They were arrested, along with their cameraman and several members of the Egyptian Antiquities Ministry.

There has been a number of recent scientific discoveries about the Great Pyramids of Giza using technologically advanced methods. For instance, a methodology that utilizes measurements in the variation of flux from cosmic muons (heavy cousins of the electron)—called archaeological muography—detected evidence for a possible second entrance and hidden corridor in the Great Pyramid of Giza (the largest of the Pyramids of Giza). As well, thermal imaging have revealed perplexing thermal anomalies in the Great Pyramid. Several explanations were put forward to explain the cause of the anomalies, but one particularly suggestive explanation was that it is due to increased air circulation caused by a hidden corridor or chamber — corroborating similar findings using muonic radiographic analysis.
In a recent study it has been reported in the Journal of Applied Physics that the Great Pyramids are able to focus electromagnetic energy, particularly electromagnetic waves of the radio frequency range. Researchers discovered resonant features associated with the Pyramid’s electromagnetic dipole and quadrupole moments. Specifically, mathematical analysis indicated that the structure’s inner spaces and foundation resonate when hit by external radio waves with a wavelength of 200 to 600 meters, and can control the propagation, scattering, and concentration of this electromagnetic energy. Under these resonant conditions electromagnetic field distributions inside the Pyramid are found to be channeled and concentrated into the Pyramid’s chambers.
The resonant concentration of electromagnetic energy by the Pyramid is excellent to see confirmed using physical methods of measurement and analysis, although to many who are very familiar with the Great Pyramids it is not altogether surprising. The pyramids have many physical features that are not at all consistent with them being “burial tombs”. Not least of which is the highly specific engineering of the channels and chambers within the Pyramids, that are able to channel and concentrate electromagnetic and acoustic waves.
The most recent study offers intriguing evidence of a profound level of understanding and technological engineering capabilities of the civilization that built the pyramids. Skeptics may suggest that it is just an odd coincidence, although the “anomalous coincidences” are starting to add up—however given the sophistication required to build the Pyramid’s in the first place, as well as many of the ancient structures in surrounding locations that can channel sound waves in remarkable ways, it is perhaps not so speculative to think that these ancient builders understood the nature of ambient wave phenomena and were able to manipulate and work with it using grand megalithic construction.
