Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Ancient Egypt: Pyramids Ancient Egypt: Pyramids Ancient Egypt: Pyramids Ancient Egypt: Pyramids Why were the pyramids built? The pyramids were built to protected the bodies of the dead pharaohs from floods, wild animals, and grave robbers. The pyramid also contained supplies that the pharaohs might need in the "afterlife" that included clothing, furniture, jewelry, and food. Ancient Egypt: Pyramids http://www.studyofoa http://www.studyofoa The Kings Chamber measures 10.45 meters by 5.20 meters, and is 5.80 meters high and is made entirely of pink granite. It had to be built to handle an enormous amount of pressure from the minerals above it. It is a great feat of architecture as its flat roof supports over four hundred tons of mineral. In the four thousand years since their creation, only one small crack has developed in the ceiling pieces near the south wall. In the walls, on each side of the upper room, there are two holes, one opposite to another, their ends not visible, nor big enough to be crept into. Queen's Chamber You enter through a horizontal passageway from the lower end of the Great Gallery. About five meters from the end of the passage, there is a step, before the passage slopes downward a further sixty centimeters to the floor level of the Queens Chamber. The chamber itself is made entirely of beautifully finished limestone blocks with a ceiling. There are seven of these steps, so at the top the Grand Gallery is only 1.04 metres (3.4 ft) wide. It is roofed by pieces of stone laid at a slightly steeper angle than the floor of the gallery, so that each stone fits into a slot cut in the top of the gallery Yaira Mendoza
