Monuments for Pharaohs

Monuments for Pharaohs

Subject: History

? 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:
