Egypt|Cairo|Tour to The Pyramids of Giza|Sphinx

 ITINERARY
How did the Pharaohs build the massive pyramids?
That's certainly the first question that comes to your mind every time you see the Pyramids. You really wish you could have " a time machine " to travel back in time and find out by yourself.
To fully appreciate the art of building pyramids in Pharaonic Egypt, you have to go back to the third millennium to discover how they built them at a time they didn't even have the wheel or the pulley.
Take a very interesting tour to the Pyramids of Giza and The sphinx to see how they did that. Learn how they made a few "mistakes" before they raised the amazing Pyramid of Cheops at Giza, a feet of engineering by all means. It's not a coincidence some people consider it one the of the best structures ever made by man in all ages.
To build this pyramid you have to be a first-class mason, engineer, architect, mathematician, astronomer and surveyor. The ancient Egyptians just mastered all these sciences three thousand years before Christ was born.
The Great Pyramid of Giza (also called the Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb for fouthe dynaste Egyptian Pharaoh khofo (Cheops in Greek) and constructed over a 14 to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC Pick up at your hotel in Cairo to discover first the Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mykerinus Then proceed to visit the Great Sphinx, the head of a pharaoh with a lion's body and the Valley Temple.
Optional :
- Have a camel/carriage ride by the pyramids and across the Sahara .
- Have lunch in a local restaurant (optional).
if you want to spend the evening outside the hotel, you can book sound & light show or have a dinner cruise which is a unique experience in a 5* boat with an interesting program including oriental egyptian dancing ,folkloric show&open buffet with a delicious egyptian and international food

How ancient Egyptians Were cutting the Obelisk from the Granite quarry?

Today, quarrymen cut and carve granite using saws with diamond-edged blades and steel chisels.

But ancient Egyptian quarrymen and stonemasons didn't have these modern tools. How, then, did they quarry and cut such clean lines in their obelisks and other monumental statuary?
To find out how ancient Egyptians quarried huge pieces of granite for their obelisks, i traveled to an ancient quarry in Aswan, located 500 miles south of Cairo. This is where the ancient Egyptians found many of the huge granite stones they used for their monuments and statues.

One of the most famous stones left behind is the Unfinished Obelisk, more than twice the size of any known obelisk ever raised. Quarrymen apparently abandoned the obelisk when fractures appeared in its sides. However, the stone, still attached to bedrock, gives important clues to how the ancients quarried granite.

Archeologist Mark Lehner, a key member of nova expedition, crouches in a granite trench that abuts one side of…

Hesi-re, the first Dentist, in ancient Egypt and in the world

Hesire was a high official who lived during the reign of Netjerikhet (Dosjer) 2686 BC to 2613 BC . His tutelary informs us of the many offices he had held during his life. Thus he was the 'overseer of the royal scribes', at the head of the royal administration of Djoser. His most spectacular title, however, was that of the 'greatest (or chief ?)of physicians and dentists'. It is not entirely clear whether this title infers that Hesire himself was honored as the greatest of physicians and dentists, or rather that he was merely responsible for the administration of physicians and dentists. But whatever the case, the distinction between 'physicians' and 'dentists' in his tutelary does show a high degree of medical specialization at this early stage of the history of Ancient Egypt..

Das Tal der Koenige

Die geographische Lage
Das Gebiet bei Theben lieferte ein vorzügliches Gebiet für das Anlegen einer königlichen Nekropole. Vom Westufer des Nils erstreckt sich eine flache Ebene zu einer Bergkette mit zahlreichen abgeschiedenen Tälern, die sich zwischen hohen Klippen und weichem Gestein durchschlängeln. Die Ebene eignete sich ideal für das Errichten der königlichen Totentempel. Die Täler hingegen boten genügend Platz, um viele kunstvoll in den Fels gehauene Gräber anzulegen. Auch aus symbolischen Gründen wählten die Alten Ägypter diesen Platz für das Errichten einer Nekropole. Blickt man von der Stadt Theben über den Nil auf das thebanische Bergmassiv, dann ähnelt es in der Gestalt einer riesigen Version der Hieroglyphe für "Horizont". Es ist das ägyptische Symbol für das Gebiet der auf- und untergehenden Sonne. Im Neuen…
