Hi Steven,

I have for some time nurtured the concept that the GP could have been built with the assistence of 'hydraulic power'.

Briefly, as well as the existent 'causeways' linking the site to the Nile the concept would have required a couple of central granite lift-wells through which the water levels were alternatively raised and lowered to hoist the blocks.

Perhaps the 'pumphouse gang'[ a Tom Wolfe novelette ] could give some consideration to the possibility?

cheers,

Fiasco
