    Wow.

    Those slaves surely had great skills.

    Sure.

    Does anybody ever read complete sentences anymore?
    Does the term "on the backs of slaves" have no secondary message buried within it?

    Did you know that the first recorded labor strike was during the building of a pyramid?
    And that the reason was "garlic rations".

    p.s. The primitive "trundle wheel" is still used today to measure exact distances.

    Water in a square tub is still used to measure horizontal.
    It has now been replaced by the enclosed "airbubble" in spirit level.

    Most tools we have today are merely refinements on some very fundamental principles.

    Tools that accomplish the task they were made for are NOT primitive

    It is a matter of degree. There is never only this or only that . I am sure both slaves and seasonal unemployed workers were used as they are today for major infrastructure projects.

    Judging by recent history, slaves make for cheap labor of physically demanding jobs. All great labour intensive infrastructures in the US were made on the backs of slaves.
    Were Egyptians then more civilized than modern man was a few decades ago and still today in the great modern works in the Middle East.

    Skilled labour is expensive. Paying high wages for 30 years to tens of thousands of physical laborers to build a single pyramid would not be very cost effective. In that respect, nothing has changed much in a few millenia.

    MODERN SLAVERY: A HIDDEN, EVERYDAY PROBLEM.
    Isn't it interesting that Egypt is not mentioned in this list?

    Stop hijacking threads.
    Why can't you start your own thread instead of hijacking others?

    There it is . Close the thread. It got 1 like. Hooray! Standing ovation!

    Is that what you can offer to the OP question? Give me a break .

    Citing slavery as having been a big part of these enormous works is perfectly appropriate.
