How the pyramids were built remains a highly debated mystery. Most findings agree, however, that ropes, pulleys, and other similar instruments probably played some role in building them. The Great Pyramid, which is believed to have been built around 2550 BCE, stood as the world’s tallest structure for many centuries.

Even though the exact nature of how the pyramids were built is still unknown to us, historians believe that at least 20,000 workers played a role in the Great Pyramid’s construction. Amazingly, they also believe it only took 20 years to construct.
