Assuming the 4th Dynasty Egyptians
did not build the three main pyramids at
Giza, or others attributed to those who came
before and since, then who could have possibly built
them. If we limit ourselves to the boundaries of Egypt, we
have a few groups of nomadic peoples to choose from. As T-Bird opined,
there was a wet spell for the Sahara Desert, that coincided with a period of
migration into and out of Southern Egypt.
From the link:
"Paleoclimate and archaeological evidence
tells us that, 11,000-5,000 years ago, the Earth's
slow orbital 'wobble' transformed today's Sahara desert to
a land covered with vegetation and lakes."
One can find evidence of human existence
on this page, including cave art such as that from
The Swimmers Cave.
We also know that the area around Nabta
Playa was a migrational rest stop, including what
most consider the use of a megalithic alignment of stone
and wood for astronomical information.
From the link:
"By 9000 years ago, the settlements around
Nabta were larger and some of the inhabitants were
able to live in the desert year around by digging walk-in
wells, providing water for them and their domesticated animals.
Around 7500 years ago a major change occurred in the character of the
Neolithic society at Nabta. In their periodic movement, synchronized with the
summer rains, they established a pattern of movement across the landscape that paralleled
the heavenly cycle of the sun in the sky, and these nomads may have become some of the worlds first
pilgrims. Their repetitive movement over the millennia into Nabta may have eventually acquired a deeper meaning and significance than simply a search for food and water."
There are many other areas nearby
that show signs of possible habitation
that might be worth exploring as well.
And, because time is limited, I will
have to leave it there for the time being.
So, if I had to hazard a guess, and we
have eliminated other possibilities for the sake
of argument,this would be my best guess as to who might
possibly have built these great monuments.
Thanos, thank you for a chance to do
some research. I am always grateful for your
topics on such matters, and they always seems to have
the capacity to enlighten me.
All the best,
