Pyramids of Egypt

The Pyramids of Egypt are far bigger than most people would imagine. They are even more amazing when we consider that they were built nearly 4600 years ago. When built, they were covered with a smooth limestone surfacing that gave them a sleek finished look. Today they have a rugged exterior because subsequent ancient rulers filched the surface stones from the monuments for use on their own buildings.
