did gravity change? yes. did the Egyptians could care less, because it was "negligeble"? yes. earth axis change caused less gravity? perhaps. earth axis change known as earth axis precession makes a complete loop every 26,000 years...that just destributes the mass, which changes the gravity field of Earth. Some place on Earth have much less gravity than others and this isn't just because of the oblateness of Earth and because there is more mass at the equatorial latitude.

The island of Male in Laccadive Sea seems to have the least amount of gravity than any other place on Earth....straaange. in fact the really low gravity field at Maldives causes the sea level to decrease there, whereas just 1000 miles off from Maldives the sea levels are rising!
