    That ramp is at a quarry. It employed posts driven into the ground far enough to withstand many hundreds of pounds of pull.

    Or they could have spiraled the ramps around the pyramids. MUCH less material needed that way.

    Sorry, this is the default theory, is it not?
    Is someone suggesting they didn't spiral the ramps?

    Everybody's pet theory is out to play, I think. However, in that great docu, "10,000 BC", they definitely did it the stupid way, straight up. So, case closed.

    I just didn't hear anyone here suggesting it wasn't a spiral.
