Why Did The Egyptians Stop Building Pyramids? | Immortal Egypt | Timeline

The professor explores one of Saqqara's last pyramid complexes to illustrate how Ancient Egypt's `Pyramid Age' came to an end. A worsening climate combined with political upheaval, famine and economic difficulties to plunge the state into a dark era of civil war, with the land dividing into smaller city-states headed by ambitious small-town leaders. In an obscure tomb in Thebes, she uncovers the stories of warriors who fought in the bloody battle that would eventually lead to Egypt's reunification, and reveals how settlers known as the `Hyksos' tried to infiltrate the fledgling nation's government to seize the throne.

  • Did anybody ever ask himself why those pyramids at Giza were built? Not to host the body of an unimportant pharaoh but to save knowledge. They were built by a high educated and skilled Previous Civilization that knew that they would vanish because of a recurring, thus predictable natural disaster. They made the Great Pyramid as a message from them to us. In the pyramid their history must have been recorded. And they may have left interesting knowledge for us. But everything is stolen thousands of years ago. Later pharaos, leading a less skilled civilization, tried to copy this concept because it would make a great burrial site for them. But soon they realized that they were no longer capable to make such a construction. That recurring disaster is caused by the ninth planet of our solar system, also known as Nibiru. That planet is known for thousands of years. We find abundant and convincing evidence for the crossing of this planet 9 and the cycle of civilizations that is the effect of the disasters. To learn more about the cycle of civilizations and its timeline, recurring floods and ancient high tech, read the e-book: Planet 9 = Nibiru. You can read it nicely on any computer, tablet or smartphone. Just search for: invisible nibiru 9

  • Isn't it usually hot in Egypt? Why the solid black garments? You're a pretty lady, who would look "much" better in lighter, pastel colours; as a summer dress for instance. A nice, summery type parasol would also be suitable. I believe that black attracts 'more' heat?! And if you are concerned about your weight, stop punishing yourself. Most of all of us, male & female have a few extra pounds...so what! You're a professor my dear, and that is a very respectable achievement! By the way, I'm not a clothes designer or even remotely connected to that. I'm a 77-year-old man, Canadian, and I suppose feel younger than that. Er..., most of the time! All the best, Erik

  • Jesus Christ y’all still teaching the Egyptians build them when we’ve confirmed they predate the Egyptians and found the Dead Sea scrolls which say they were made by Enoch before the flood, as well as finding heavy water erosion around the sphinx supporting that they were made before the flood before Egyptians? Seriously? How can pretend to be educated enough to make a documentary you’re not even educated in?

  • Why did the Egyptians stop building pyramids? Because My Israelite people were liberated from Egypt and set out to their promised land. This set in motion the end of the age of worshipping the pagan sun and moon gods of Nimrod's descendant nations which became Babylon, Egypt, Greece, and Rome, Aztec, Miyan, many of the Arab cultures, among others. This is also why we see pyramids around the world dating to 3-6,000 years ago. When Babel was destroyed, the people were scattered across the globe. With them, they took their pagan worship of the sun and moon gods, and their building of pyramids to house them. All going back to the original pyramid of Babel destroyed by God. They were simply building what they knew. In time, Monotheism took over, whether through Judaism, Christianity, or Islam, and this practice of building a tower to and for, your gods ended.

  • Ancient Egypt reached the same that all groups of people eventually come to reach, God’s or God. Seems to me that, it’s unavoidable, maybe even fixed, and any lack of it’s upkeep, leads to the groups break up. The stronger and longer control of religion the governance of the group has, correlates with the growth, power and longevity of the groups. Amazing is that we have gotten this far.

  • I like this woman she explains things well but she leans towards the established theories and old school rhetoric... So she might benefit by looking at the buildings and have a think about the difficulty of cutting a 60 tonne block of granite and lifting it 100 meters into the air and fitting it inside the kings chamber of the Great pyramid...And tell me they cut these blocks with copper saws .. I don't think so It would have taken hardened iron with diamond tip blades to get through Granite ... It is simply not true that we are only civilisation to produce hardened steel... well yes apparently according to the historians the Egyptians only had basic metal working skills and could only melt copper Rubbish I don't believe that... I have worked in a cast iron foundry I know what it takes to make Iron ,,, and use a blast furnace... so did the Egyptians because places of melted stone is in funny places.... so we can prove they had the technology to smelt Iron , all you need is iron ore limestone and iron will be made at 1600 degrees Ferlinghetti.....
