Who built the Pyramids?
The Pyramids of Giza, the most famous of which is the Great Pyramid, were built more than 4,500 years ago during the Old Kingdom period in Ancient Egypt. The pharaohs Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure are credited with commissioning and overseeing the construction of these massive structures. The pyramids were built by skilled laborers and craftsmen who were organized into work gangs and employed advanced engineering techniques to transport and place the huge stone blocks used to build the structures. Despite the passage of time, the Pyramids continue to fascinate and mystify people around the world with their size, complexity, and the ingenuity required to build them.
