SMALL DUCT-SYSTEM ON THE
PLATEAU OF GIZA

MACHINES, CHANNELS, DAMS, LOCKS
AND THE HYDROPOWER

Approximately 2,300,000 blocks come from the direct vicinity of the Great Pyramid. Another 200,000 come from the about 900 km remote Aswan and from the diagonally opposite situated east of the Nile, from Tura.

The problem:
How did the ancient Egyptians form these masses of stone to an accurate pyramid?

The solution:
The ancient builders took advantage of the power of water for

  • TRANSPORTATION
  • LIFTING and
  • PLACEMENT

of the stone blocks.

The stones from outside, including the to this day known 100 monoliths - some of them over 40 tons in weight - came by water passage through locks on the plateau. Together with the local units, they were transported to a "small duct system" which was filled with water from the Nile - located on the east side of the Pyramid. For the purposes of transport to the pyramid dams were built. Machines lifted and moved the stones.

  • 7 Ships' lifting units - the barks and the pits (Colour Black) — see also Image 6
  • Channel filled with water (coloured blue)
  • Dams with slope towards pyramid for stone transport
  • Ramps
  • Subways / underpasses
  • 38 stone-lifting machines of Cheops on east and north side of pyramid, 6a) 22 stone-lifting machines of Cheops at the east transport dams
  • Transport ramps
  • Road for drainage of water
  • Water drainage valve
  • Locks on south side of pyramid
  • Edge of plateau, 22) and 23) Supply transport paths, 24) Water feed into the small-duct-system from the harbor of Chephren

Remark:
The small-duct-system with connection to the deep-water port on the north-eastern side of the Giza Plateau may be viewed in Book No. 2 on pages 110 and 111 as well as in Book No. 3 on pages 106 and 107 including descriptions and coloured images.

Summary:
MACHINES - CHANNELS - DAMS - LOCKS and the HYDROPOWER formed a self-contained unit during the construction of the Cheops Pyramid.

Question:
Who was capable of moving such large masses of water?
