Why were pyramids so popular in the ancient world?


The ancient Egyptians took pyramid construction to new heights along the Nile River in northeastern Africa 5,000 years ago, but they weren’t the only civilization to build massive pyramid-shaped monuments (for even to mummify their dearly departed, which other ancient cultures also practiced). Pyramids were the most structurally sound buildings that could be constructed out of stone – as long as a civilization had sufficient rocks to quarry and the manpower to move them. Cultures all over the world built pyramids throughout history. They came in different forms and functions.
