Building the pyramids would be a difficult feat even today, let alone in 2650 BC when the first pyramid was built. To build a pyramid of the scale of the Great Pyramid at Giza, one would need a lot of resources, a clear plan of action, and a large, organized workforce. The first step would be to secure a large enough workforce, likely through conscription of the local population. This workforce would need to be trained and organized into separate divisions with clearly defined tasks and responsibilities. The second step would be to secure the necessary resources. Stone was the primary material used for building the pyramids, and the Egyptians likely quarried it from the nearby limestone cliffs. Logistical methods would have been used to transport the stone blocks to the pyramid site. Thirdly, the project would need a clear set of plans. The ancient Egyptians likely used a combination of mathematics and surveying to level and lay out the pyramid base. After establishing the groundwork and securing the necessary resources, the Egyptians could begin to build the pyramid. This would require stacking and arranging the stone blocks in a specific order, with the largest blocks forming the base and the smallest making up the pyramid’s pointed tip. Finally, the pyramid would need to be covered with limestone or marble to protect it from the elements. This process would require craftsmen to carve and place the blocks in place. Overall, building the pyramids required a large amount of manpower, resources, and planning. Without these components, it would be impossible to replicate the scale and complexity of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
