How were the pyramids built?
The Egyptians cut big limestone blocks with copper chisels and saws. Powerful men dragged the big bricks to the pyramids site and pushed the first layer of the stones in place. Next they built long ramps of earth and brick to drag upthe next layer of stones . They continued that process until they made it to the top. Finally, the Egyptians covered the pyramid with an outer coating of white casing stones. They laid them so close together that it looked like it was cut out of a single white stone.
