Shownotes

In this episode, we delve deeper into the top ten pyramids of the world according to the TV show "Ancient Aliens." Our focus is on the Egyptian pyramids and the myths surrounding their construction. We will examine the Djoser Step Pyramid, the oldest pyramid on the list, and discuss how it was built as a tomb for the third dynastic ruler, Netjerikhet. We will also discuss the great pyramid builder Sneferu and his contributions to Ancient Egypt's creation of a true pyramid building.

One of the most controversial topics surrounding the Egyptian pyramids is the discovery of human remains. Many alternative historians claim that there is no credible evidence of bodies ever being entombed in the pyramids. However, this is simply not true. Carbon dating has shown that at least two pharaohs seem to have been found in their pyramids, and there is evidence of remains in several others. The pyramid of Djoser, for example, contained human remains, although they were found to be from a later burial and not from the pharaoh himself. Nevertheless, the pyramid was designed to be a tomb from the beginning, as evidenced by texts from ancient visitors in the mortuary temple who talk about their visit to the grave.

So join us as we separate fact from fiction and uncover the truth behind the Egyptian pyramids. We aim to provide you with a deeper understanding of ancient history and help you evaluate claims about alternative history and ancient aliens in popular media. Don't miss this episode of "Digging Up Ancient Aliens" - it's sure to be an enlightening and fascinating journey into the past.
