The enigma of how the ancient Egyptians transported the colossal blocks of stone to build the pyramids took an important turn thanks to a discovery made by space archaeologists.
Using radar technology on satellites, they identified a huge buried waterway, known as the Ahramat branchwhich extends for approximately 100 kilometers on the west side of the Nile Valley, connecting all the pyramids in this region.
This discovery raises the hypothesis that these ancient river highways They were used to transport materials and labor to construction sites. pyramids. The Ahramat branch, now completely buried, is essential to understanding the logistical organization and creation of these ancient structures.
Dr. Eman Ghoneim, head of the research team, noted that The presence of pyramids in the region suggests the existence of bodies of water in the past, this made it easier to transport rocks and workers.
This This discovery highlights one of the great unknowns in the construction of the pyramids and, at the same timeoffers a new perspective on ancient Egyptian civilization.
The ability of radar waves from satellites to penetrate the Earth’s surface and reveal subterranean terrain has become an essential tool for archaeological discoveries. Locating ancient arms of the Nile could lead to new archaeological discoveries in the future, unearthing lost cities and temples. This breakthrough highlights the crucial role of space technology in exploring and understanding ancient civilizations.
