Petrie believed in a single straightr on ramp.
Not totally true.
His fullest description was later than his "Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh".
"The top hundred feet, less than a hundreth of the pyramid, would have to raised by staging on the courses."The Wisdom of the Egyptians" Petrie p41.>>>
I think the major sticking point about a straight on ramp is the misconception that it would have gone all the way to the top.
NOONE has ever suggested this
association on these boards is the broad
misconception that what we do not know is more
significant than what we do know."
