    Technically through a system of rollers made from logs, inclines made from sand and sheer strength. In reality, members of the Jewish race, occupied by the ancient Egyptian government use the slaves as disposable labor to create their monuments.

    Since some of the blocks used weigh over 40 tons apiece, and the uppermost blocks had to be raised nearly 500 feet from the ground, there has been a good deal of doubt as to how the Egyptian engineers did their work. One theory is that a huge incline of earth or sand was raised, running from the banks of the Nile to the site, up which to drag the stones, and that it was raised as the work proceeded. But the construction and removal of such an incline would have been an even more gigantic task than erecting the Pyramid itself. It is more likely that the explanation given by Herodotus is the correct one; namely, that the stones were lifted from course to course by levers and manpower.
