Anywhere from 4000 to 18000 men were needed to build the pyramids. *Master builders were needed to make a perfect square base. *Quarry men dug out stone from the ground. While Architects were planners of the pyramid, Mason's shaped rough stone. Sculptors made statues and carvings, and many farmers worked on pyramids of there own. How were the Pyramids built? * First they would prepare the site by leveling the area, and then they would remove the sand and gravel so that the pyramid stands on bare rock. * They also had to align the pyramid so each side faced exactly north, south, east, or west. * As they got higher up the pyramid mud ramps were built to make it easier to put the next level of the pyramid on. They would keep building the ramp taller and taller as they go up the pyramid.
