Extreme Egyptian Masonry

It is not surprising that the occasional eyebrow was raised in the past concerning the extent of the Egyptian masonry skills during the Early dynastic period. Not only were the structures superior in a visionary capacity, but also in precision, design and execution. The Dynastic period of Egypt heralded a time of extraordinary achievement, it was the age of the pyramid builders when some of the largest and most sophisticated structures of all time were built, including the last remaining 'Seven-Wonders' of the ancient world, all built in the Neolithic period.

Although apparently spontaneous, the technology underlying these huge constructions and was built on a foundation of science and mathematics which in turn, has provided us with traces of their manufacturing processes which are proving equally astonishing.
