Welcome to our website about the Egyptian
Pyramids. Click a link on the left to get started. Here are some fun facts about the Pyramids:
The Great Pyramid was able to be used
as the starting point for measuring and drawing ancient maps.
A pyramid was used as a giant tomb
for a Pharaoh.
The pyramids were built with large
stone blocks. No one really knows how the Egyptians moved the stones
without wheels to help transport them and no cranes to lift them.
The burial chambers in the centers of the pyramids were filled with
many riches. They believed that the Pharaoh could take them on with
them to the afterlife.
All of the pyramids are on the west
bank of the nile.
