    You can see the encroachment of Cairo maybe eliminates the 1 mile South East of the Great Pyramid where the Valley temple ( bottom centre ) was, it is only just visible, there is nothing beyond this point that is now identifiable . [​IMG]

    In the image I may have or not seen the ground was flat and there wasn't any surface feature or structure near them.

    What drives me crazy is the way so many people say the pyramids were built by slave labor. As I'm sure you know, August, the workers who built the pyramids were skilled craftsmen who were paid for their work. They took tremendous pride in their efforts. After their deaths many of them insisted upon being buried in graveyards near the Giza pyramid complex.

    They had beer and the best of steaks and fish to eat and the best medical attention when injured on the job . Not bad for slave labour. Yes as you say they were laid to rest right next to their beloved Pharaoh for their eternal or not so eternal rest. [​IMG]
