A Sight To Behold

The Great Pyramid of Giza is a ticket back in time. The Egyptians put such a great amount of effort into preserving themselves after death that, in doing so, they told us a great deal about the way they lived.

The pyramids still confound scientists today as to how they were built. Despite being over 4,500 years old, they were made with staggeringly advanced skill. Just standing in front of one is a spectacular sight.
