If pyramids and the mysteries behind them are your thing then you probably have heard about the Great Pyramid of Giza. If you haven’t heard of it, the pyramid of Giza is known as the oldest Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
In fact, it’s the only one that remains to be fully intact. But regardless if you are into pyramids or not, I’m sure everyone at some point in their lives has wondered about the construction of the pyramids.
