A stairway to heaven

shall be laid down for him,

that he may ascend

to heaven thereon.

Pyramid Text 267,

The Pyramid of Unas

The Pyramid of Pharaoh Djoser in Sakkara

It is humanity’s oldest monumental construction, built 4,600 years ago.

Even today it remains a mystery how the Egyptians were able move such huge masses of material over a period of just a few years to such towering heights.
