Monuments for Pharaohs
? There have been many theories regarding how the pyramids at Giza were constructed. Most
experts agree that they were constructed as burial monuments for pharaohs, but “how” these
ancient people constructed monuments of such great size without modern machinery is a mystery
which is still being debated.
Write a 3-4 paragraph paper in which you:
1. Clearly state the “mystery” and provide a brief summary of at least two (2) theories which could
explain the mystery. Because some theories may sound far-fetched, include the source or
promoter of each theory – such as a scientist, a historian, a theologian, etc.
2. Identify one (1) of the theories and provide at least two (2) convincing reasons why the theory you
have chosen is the best one to explain the mystery.
3. Use at least two (2) sources besides the textbook.
Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
