Dr Pipes,

The study of modern archaeology of Egypt in general and of Giza in particular has changed our understanding of who really built the pyramids. I urge readers to read this article about who really built the pyramids and it was not built by slaves. It was built by skilled laborers and not by slaves..

This must be disappointing to those members of the regressive left that want to destroy human history and heritage. And more evidence that Egypt is not unlike a palimpsest. Even the superficial layer is destroyed there is still so much history underneath

Check this article from Harvard Magazine

It also makes me wonder, would members of the regressive left demand that Hollywood's movies that tells us that the pyramids were built by slaves be cancelled?

I doubt it very much
