The joint mission of IFAO and University of Liverpool directed by Dr. Yannis Gourdon and Dr. Roland Enmarch has discovered the way ancient Egyptians used to move the stone blocks from the alabaster quarries of Hatnub (East of Tell Amarna, Minia) during the reign of King Khufu…

“The mission successfully discovered a unique system to pull and transfer the stone blocks from the bottom of the quarry after removing the debris used to cover it which can be dated to the reign of King Khufu of the 4th Dynasty. The moving system consists of the central ramp surrounded by two set of stairs contain poles holes which help lifting the alabaster stone block through at least 20% coarse ramp. There are at least 100 inscriptions discovered commemorating pharaonic expeditions to the alabaster quarries at Hatnub from the Old Kingdom…”

You don't have an 'understanding'_____I don't recall you ever doing the engineering studies.

Which link did you get that from there a various stories by journalists - so which one had that?

Not at all only you are obsessed with ramps. Ramp theories dealing with construction are a very minor part of Egyptology. If you knew anything about the AE and Egyptology you'd know that.
