How Were the Pyramids Built in Ancient Egypt?

The ramps used for moving the stones, were made of mud brick and coated with chips of plaster to harden the surface. They most likely took the form of an inclined plane at the beginning of work, but the configuration in later stages has long been a matter of conjecture.
