The Pyramids of Egypt

The pyramids are an important cultural aspect of Africa. They were built millions of years ago by ancient Egyptians. They were used as burial chambers for ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. It took about 20 years for 100,000 slaves to build one pyramid. Even though the pyramids had to go through a long test of time, there are still many standing today.
