“The grave of a pyramid builders was discovered by a tourist in 1990”. A pyramid builders with professional talents lived nearby, while migrant labourers labored month long shifts.
The craftsman (stone carver) lives with his own family in an ordinary ancient Egyptian house inside a labourer’s city. The house has a pillared public location, a domicile and a rear place for cooking. At sunrise he rises and has a breakfast of figs, dates and bread together with his own family. meanwhile, a migrant labourer rises in an easier living that he stocks with other guys.
The craftsman joins fellow employees and they head to the quarry. The pyramid has been under creation for over a decade, however the craftsmen consider its creation as a part of their duty to the gods. Pyramid builders use stone and copper equipment such as chisels and drills. At different times they will be carving passages inside the pyramid itself.
The ancient Egyptian labourers are trying to shift a 2.5 ton block from the quarry. wooden containers in the form of a quarter circle are connected to each corner of the block so it could be rolled alongside like a barrel. At different times the blocks are dragged alongside the usage of robes, and sled-wheels might be impeded through sand and gravel.
11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Within the mid-morning heat, the employees break and chat. The stone carver is going to a place of shade and perhaps takes some wine from a pitcher. within the early afternoon, each the stone carver and labourer break for lunch. They eat bread and fish caught within the Nile.
While the ancient Egyptian pyramid builders reach the constructing site, they need to transport the blocks up ramps encircling the center of the pyramid. The men haul the blocks alongside the ramps through rope and lever them upwards. large quantities of gypsum and rubble are used to fill the gaps among the blocks.
The craftsman arrives home and he and his own family have a meal of roasted red meat or mutton with carrots and lentils. As darkness gathers, he has a few beer and lighting an oil lamp. If within the temper, he may play the board game senet together with his children. As his own family settles down for the night time, the labourer is doing likewise, dreaming of the day his shift ends and he can go back to his own family village.
