Strap yourselves in lads this is going to be a long one ... I tired to keep it relatively short to hold the attention span but there is so much information and evidence out there that keeping it short is no small task. I will provide pics for your visual pleasure but ill try and limit it to 1 to 2 pics per area just for efficiencies sake, if you would like more pics just google any of the areas i will show and im sure there will be plenty.
Now this is a subject that has baffled me my whole life, megalithic stones just everywhere in the ancient world across all cultures from one end of the globe to the other. One of the most remarkable prehistoric human achievements was our ability to work with stone on a seemingly gigantic and effortless scale, which apart from the technical implications, reveals the presence of sophisticated and complex people, who proved themselves to be anything but primitive.
There are many theories on how these stones were moved cut and transported i am not here to advocate one over the other because the fact is like many things in the ancient world we weren't there and can only offer theories on what we think may or may not have happened, my job here is to bring this to the attention of people who are interested and want to know more or people who have no knowledge that this even exists.
Ok lets start with the more famous ones and work our way into some that you may or may not have heard of before.
Well obviously we have the pyramids but im assuming you have all seen them, so here are some more that you may or may not have seen.
Measures 120-feet (42m) and would have weighed over 1,168 tons when complete.
Colossal statue of Ramses
Thebes Egypt Colossal statue of Ramses 1,000 tons was transported 170 miles (270 km) by ship (apparently) from Aswan to Thebes
The Colossi of Memnon
Including the stone platforms on which they stand (about 4 metres (13 ft) themselves), the colossi reach a towering 18 metres (approx. 60 ft) in height and weigh an estimated 700 tons each.
Inside The 'Great' pyramid of Khufu
The 'Kings chamber' in the Great pyramid is covered over with several granite stones estimated at 50-70 tons each. The Gable stones over the entrance and several of the stones covering the descending passage are also several cubic meters in size.
The Valley Temple and The Osireion
Made of 'rose-coloured Aswan granite', the ten central columns each measure 2.096m² (5) and 4.19²m high (5) most weigh between 49.68 tons and 59 tons.
... many many many more in Egypt alone but ill need to move on or the Egypt part alone will take up to much.
