Tragic Primary Source About Building the Pyramids Is Found

Primary Source Tablet:

Building the pyramids is much harder than you think. I was one of the few that volunteered to build a very large pyramid for our Pharaoh Khufu. Myself and a few other lean men stood on the hot sand waiting. I was unsure what we were waiting for then I saw a boat across the Nile. It was carrying large blocks of limestone. As soon as the boat crossed the river we pulled the heavy, heavy blocks to make the base of the pyramid. I was fine building the base layers of the pyramids, but I didn't want to go any higher than ten blocks of limestone stacked on each other. I only had this fear because my brother had fallen off a pyramid before and died. I knew I would have to go up, so when racing day came I was scared out of my mind. My group and myself grabbed the rope and began puling it up the ramp to the 17th level of blocks. We turned left off the ramps and positioned our block of limestone. We did this multiple times, and on our last turn we ran up the ramp and placed our block, but the block below me was lose. The block slid out from under and then everything went black, and that is why I can no longer walk, but I'm thankful I'm still alive to tell my story.

Tutankhamen Changes His Name

As we know Tutankhamen became pharaoh with the name Tutankhamen. Tutankhamen has told us that he has been thinking about changing his name and finally has. He is changing his name from Tutankhamen, which means living image of the Aten, to Tutankhamen Heqaiunshema, which means living image of Amun, ruler of Heliopolis of Upper Egypt. Tutankhamen says he will still be addressed as Tutankhamen, but his formal name is Tutankhamen Heqaiunshema.
