The Egyptians would have had an especially easy time of directly viewing the curvature of the earth since the flood was many miles wide in spots. All they had to do was observe something of known height on the other side the curve of the water and then compute the size of the earth.

There are many ways they could measure the earth and they likely used them all.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
