“The pyramid itself, yeah, it’s incredible that they did it and
it would be great to know how they did it. If there was an internal ramp,
how did it work? Will it tell us anything about how they turned the
corners with the blocks? That would be great to know!”
- John Coleman Darnell, Ph.D., Prof. of Egyptology, Yale University
