For the pyramid construction the pharaohs had to use local workers who, despite of what was thought, were volunteers. Once with the workers the artisans and the peasants in the time of the Nile overflows more than four thousands of people were working every year to this work which had to take the pharaoh through eternity. The pyramid construction supposed a series of problems. The first of them was to find a place large enough, smooth and stable to sustain the 2 million blocks of stones of the edifice. The second problem was the cut of the stones and the third was the transportation of these blocks to the construction` s place with a ship, and the last, the mounting of the stone blocks ones across the others. In this moment, the Egyptians` genius of constructors interferes. The construction of the edifice consisted in the mounting of some platforms, smaller and smaller, till the top. Each of these platforms started in center where the funeral chambers were situated as well as the different access galleries. When the top was reached, the pyramidion was installed and the stuffing stones were placed from top till down. There are small doubts regarding the technique used to rise the stones. The most probably would be the existence of a ramp supported to pyramid. Thousands of workers were pulling each block of stone till the top. The ramp had to be elongated while the construction was built in order to keep a relative smooth ramp. About 100 pyramids were built in 2000 years by pharaoh dynasties. The result is under our eyes: the pyramid of Gisah, the first and the oldest of the world seven wonders, are still standing today as testimony, while other pyramids are in ruin or just disappeared.
