Could the ancient Egyptians to erect their own giant pyramids and palaces? People who only read about these structures in the history books, I guess: Yes. But many of those who have been in this country, and wander, for example, along the valley of Giza, no doubt. Too impressive these structures, even on their construction, as expected, worked tens of thousands of slaves.
Version Of The Conan Doyle
The theory that the pyramids are material traces of a more ancient technologically advanced civilization that does not put forward today. For example, in 1929 “father of Sherlock Holmes” by Arthur Conan Doyle published the fiction novel “Markatov the abyss” whose characters are in a city – island, thousands of years ago sank to the bottom of the Atlantic ocean. When one examines the underwater structure, it is observed that: “Columns, platforms and staircases of this building exceeded anything I have ever seen on earth. Most of all, the building looked like the remains of the temple of Karnak in Luxor, in Egypt, and, strange to say, ornaments and half-erased inscriptions in the details resembled the same decoration and inscriptions of the great ruins near the Nile”.
