|Description ||The most awesome experience is to enter the Pyramid of Khafre at Giza. Is it just a coincidence that Giza is located exactly 30 degrees and zero minutes from the equator? (Cairo is 30 degrees 1 minute North)|
Just think about it - some time before 2,500 BC, the Egyptians of the Old Kingdom placed the Sphinx and the great pyramids exactly one third of the way up from the equator and two thirds of the way down from the north pole. With all that space to go at - it must have been deliberate and proves that they knew about the size and shape of the earth. Western civilisation had to wait another 4000 years to finally move away from the concept of a flat earth.
