It’s September 2018 and Dr Roland Enmarch, co-director of an Anglo-French team of archaeologists, is excavating at the Hatnub quarries in Egypt. The site includes many ancient inscriptions and it’s those that Enmarch and his team are here to study. But then they stumble across something else entirely. And it may hold the key as to how the Egyptians built their pyramids.
The building of the pyramids has long been the subject of speculation and controversy. For example, one of the most heated debates has been about the labor force that constructed the buildings. Though what isn’t in doubt is the large size of the team that built them.
