Engineer shares new theory on the construction of Egyptian pyramids

READ ARTICLE – Construction Specifier


Welsh engineer, Peter James, suggests ancient Egyptian builders created the Great Pyramids with construction practices still applied today.

James, the managing director of Cintec™ International in Newport, Wales, has worked with the engineering firm restoring historical buildings in Egypt for 18 years, including mosques, temples, and both the Red and Step Pyramids. The latter was the first high-rise structure built in ancient Egypt and stands at 62-m (203-ft) tall. For centuries, the pyramids have been an object of wonder due to the size and ingenuity behind them, and James has created a new theory on how they were constructed.
