Building the Pyramids of Egypt. Could this be the way the ancient Egyptians actually built the pyramids some 4 thousand years ago?

I think they still would've had to haul the stones up long ramps, but it`s better than trying to cut perfect limestone blocks from the ground.

There are limestone quarries outside of Giza that show that the stone was taken from there for the three great pyramids. There is a similar quarry and proof of excavation in Abu Roash where the 4th pyramid stood.

Interesting experiment, but not likely how it was done. Occams razor, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.
