Engineering lessons from the Great Pyramid of Giza
Published:  06 December, 2018

In terms of construction and engineering feats, it’s difficult to trump the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. And yet, much of their wonder comes from stories and records — there’s only one Wonder left standing for us to glean the scale of their collective triumph of engineering.

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the last remaining Wonder, with its six fellow Wonder having succumbed to earthquakes, fire, human destruction, or simply not being confirmed to exist at all. It is also the oldest Wonder, so the potential to learn from its staggering longevity is invaluable. Though modern day engineering techniques allow us access to such efficiencies as structure analysis software and top of the range tooling, these modern developments wouldn’t have transpired without the successes of the past.
