Why Did The Egyptians Stop Building Pyramids? | Immortal Egypt | Timeline

2.9M بازدید2 224

    The professor explores one of Saqqara's last pyramid complexes to illustrate how Ancient Egypt's `Pyramid Age' came to an end. A worsening climate combined with political upheaval, famine and economic difficulties to plunge the state into a dark era of civil war, with the land dividing into smaller city-states headed by ambitious small-town leaders. In an obscure tomb in Thebes, she uncovers the stories of warriors who fought in the bloody battle that would eventually lead to Egypt's reunification, and reveals how settlers known as the `Hyksos' tried to infiltrate the fledgling nation's government to seize the throne.

      They didn't no more stinkin' pyramids.

    4. Kyriakos Sidiropoulos

      does she actually believes what she says? they didn't stop; simply, they did not build them.

    5. Shane Anderson

      egyptians didn’t build anything ! they destroyed everything ! still do ! it was all there long before the Egyptians found it .

    6. Richard Key

      This so called famine was their own fault they were warned and continued to oppress GODS people - exact same as it is today

    7. Helena Franzén

      Many of us are dependant on calculators for the simplest of tasks. These people calculated and constructed these huge monuments with precision and accuracy thousands of years ago. Makes me feel dumb, really.

    8. John Entwistle

      They stopped building because the country voted in a socialist President named Kamala Harris and the rest is history !

    11. King Smoke

      It’s 2021 where did all the Egypt people go?

    12. Mako Shark

      Why they STOPPED !! lET ME THINK: WELL It goes like this.. every block was 2m by2m by 2m minimum.. so it weighs at least 18 Tons and they had no cranesand not enough cut tree trunks to roll the Blocks on as they had very snow for only 300 years non stop .. So mR Arheologist don't give us your Hsit thoery

    13. Delaram Salmassi

      I wish really from the very bottom of my heart Iran had as much history as ancient Egypt! I love ancient Egypt and its history and civilization and culture.

    14. The Atlantis Expert

      The Egyptians stopped building pyramids because they ran out of slaves to do the work...

    16. Crystal Glass

      Ancient Egypt was doing great until the Vikings invaded. Then the Aztec left Egypt and went to Mexico where invented hot chocolate

    17. Green Deane

      They also invented genital mutilation. Billions of males sexually assaulted, diminished and scarred for life without their approval.

    18. Alejandro Romero

      Becsuse they never built them in the first place..Another civilization did that's why the face of the sphinx is different..They changed it to take credit for something the never did..just moved in and became the new land lords

    19. Because their bad people had being tarnished by dazling wind/plague/sandthypoon/thunderflash ,,choking em all to last (godspeed)

    20. Professor Roy Hinkley

      They stopped building pyramids because they never built any... they found the pyramids

    22. Rachelle Roberthon Favaloro

      Why did the Egyptians lie about their carbon dating? To demolish existing UNESCO heritage sites for fracking.

    23. politically incorrect

      so why they stop building pyramids ?

      I don't believe the Egyptians built them to begin with. I think they were there before them.

    27. Stanley Arrington

      Why did the Egyptians stop building pyramids, they ran out of Large bricks.

    29. keso INFINITE

      We dont even MUMMIFY OUR PEOPLES NO MOE, it preserve the body longer and it's said to give u a smooth transition too the other side ,if u QUALIFIED .. I WONDER WHERE WE GET OUR BURIAL PROCESS FROM NOW .. hmmmm 🤔 WESTERN DOCTRINE ?

    30. Robert Bolstad

      Perhaps one of the reasons the Egyptians stopped building pyramids was simply due to escalating costs.

    31. Circle Nine

      They were not the builders of the great pyramids, they just copied after them! They found the big ones already being built, probably tens of thousands of years ago. They were just their restorers! And they gave them a purpose, a use and who could be worthy of such a construction than the most powerful man-god in the state, the pharaoh; that's it. I suspect they were being built by other humanoid species, maybe still homosapines, but long time ago, when humanity was probabily again on a very high tehnological level, similar to ours today, but yet different and maybe, even looking a little "magic" compared to our perception and how we perceive things in 2021

    32. Eigil Skovgaard

      This woman is one of the well paid gatekeepers for the worldwide accepted historical narrative. It's rather telling for the money behind her, that each time another historical video on YT ends, one of her presentations is the most likely to follow. I have watched her stand besides one of the impressive granite boxes of Serepeum and talk about a mummified bull without any physical evidence of such a thing ever found. At the same time she totally ignores the blatant more primitive carvings on the outside of the box. Such blindness makes her a professional manipulator.

    33. Sweet Trubble

      I like this lady. I saw her once before and liked her very much.

    34. Michaelangelo

      Anyone who still believes Egyptians built the pyramids- or the beautiful lion next to them.. is insane and shouldn’t be involved in researching history.

    35. Big Daddy

      Here’s the answer to the question : Why did Egyptians stop building pyramids? They never did build any

    36. Paul Kell DC

      The "Egyptians" inherited Cheops but built the recent pyramid of Sachara. The weathering surrounding the Sphinx is 10K to 800K years old.

    37. Elisha Ainsworth

      i think...leporacy. the no nose and elongaged ear... CURSED.

    38. Akira S

      What if the question in the title is based on a false premise?

    39. Brent Nuckolls

      See why they stopped evolving

    40. HughJass

      can you believe, ancient egypt lasted for 5000yrs. thats insane.

      1. Learning It Quietly

        No, I do not believe that.

      3. Ross J MacGregor

        @keso INFINITE And guardians of language. Start by spelling words correctly. Or history will show you were one of those who contributed to the downfall of language. "KNOW" and "are the" not "kno" or "da".

      4. Ross J MacGregor

        @keso INFINITE Nothing to do with being intellectually gifted, just organised. And driven.

      5. keso INFINITE

        RIGHT !!! It makes ONE wonder HOW INTELLECTUALLY GIFTED THESE PEOPLE WHERE.. HOW INNOVATIVE 🔥🔥🔥🔥 .. we kno the truth tho.. 🖤🦍💯 #NoDisrespect.. we da GUARDIANS OF THE EARTH we jus dont kno it 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤😔💯

      I got one for this "scientist". How did the cut through marble with such precision using only copper tools? No tools that size have ever been found. Two strikes and the blade would have been useless, nevermind the fact the whatever the ancient egyptians built, they put hieroglyphs EVERYWHERE. Yet nothing in the great pyramid? Get your head out of the sand!!! It ain't aliens though.

    53. Ad Roest

      Did anybody ever ask himself why those pyramids at Giza were built? Not to host the body of an unimportant pharaoh but to save knowledge. They were built by a high educated and skilled Previous Civilization that knew that they would vanish because of a recurring, thus predictable natural disaster. They made the Great Pyramid as a message from them to us. In the pyramid their history must have been recorded. And they may have left interesting knowledge for us. But everything is stolen thousands of years ago. Later pharaos, leading a less skilled civilization, tried to copy this concept because it would make a great burrial site for them. But soon they realized that they were no longer capable to make such a construction. That recurring disaster is caused by the ninth planet of our solar system, also known as Nibiru. That planet is known for thousands of years. We find abundant and convincing evidence for the crossing of this planet 9 and the cycle of civilizations that is the effect of the disasters. To learn more about the cycle of civilizations and its timeline, recurring floods and ancient high tech, read the e-book: Planet 9 = Nibiru. You can read it nicely on any computer, tablet or smartphone. Just search for: invisible nibiru 9

      They wanted to.

    56. Denny Barlau

      Why do they keep lying about the pyramids they are 10 thousand years old not 5 the Egyptians didn't build the pyramids the Annaki did

      1. Denny Barlau

        @Johann Adam Weishaupt to start they carbon test on the pyramids proving the pyramids are 10 thousand years old yet they keep saying 5 thousand they start with a lie

      2. Johann Adam Weishaupt

        @Denny Barlau And why should I believe them but not the people who made this video?

      3. Denny Barlau

        @Johann Adam Weishaupt Graham Hancock plus Eric von some thing I can't remember his last name and there are several others who have all said the same thing plus city under the pyramids it's all good stuff

      Ohhhh, yaaay!!!! I just love this Archeologist! She is glorious! As is her red hair! And, as is her lovely accent! --Shannon Aguilar ❤️

    60. Osman Memisevic

      "...not only ruled by military power, but by fear and suspicion..." Oh, what a story teller you are. Described in minute detail. I presume you lived during the time of the Pharaohs?

    61. Jeyoung An

      The clammy litter booly stain because armadillo naturalistically fry opposite a befitting museum. needy, itchy drink

    62. Erik B

      Isn't it usually hot in Egypt? Why the solid black garments? You're a pretty lady, who would look "much" better in lighter, pastel colours; as a summer dress for instance. A nice, summery type parasol would also be suitable. I believe that black attracts 'more' heat?! And if you are concerned about your weight, stop punishing yourself. Most of all of us, male & female have a few extra pounds...so what! You're a professor my dear, and that is a very respectable achievement! By the way, I'm not a clothes designer or even remotely connected to that. I'm a 77-year-old man, Canadian, and I suppose feel younger than that. Er..., most of the time! All the best, Erik

    63. Rich Greiwe

      Maybe they adopted them

    64. Ripon Khan

      Her hosting really amazing ❤️👻

    65. giuliav

      yes but why is she wearing a clown wig

    66. oneeyedboxer

      So much bloodshed for nothing, one thing I learned so far from this series is that humans need a story for them to believe and be a part of and the best story is when you tell them you are a deity or know one. Overall these documentaries are amazing and feel like a time machine.

    67. Linh Hoàng

      Fun fact: Cleopatra lived in a time period closer to today than to the time the first pyramid was built. Imagine how astounding and long lasting the Ancient Egyptian Civilization was.

      Ancient Egyptian culture has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. Love documentaries like this! 🇪🇬

    72. Cheyenne Life

      I may be the only one that noticed the Professor has a collar on.

    73. ll Kryuel ll

      Jesus Christ y’all still teaching the Egyptians build them when we’ve confirmed they predate the Egyptians and found the Dead Sea scrolls which say they were made by Enoch before the flood, as well as finding heavy water erosion around the sphinx supporting that they were made before the flood before Egyptians? Seriously? How can pretend to be educated enough to make a documentary you’re not even educated in?

    74. Elle belle

      I really like the way she presents the information.

      1. Johann Adam Weishaupt

        @tehjamez What kind of language are you typing?

      the Egyptians didn't build these pyramids. They have been around for over 10,000 years.

    76. Loren Fulghum

      This lady touched a raw mummy and then immediately touched her face. 2018 was a different world.

      1. P34RL

        Med students often become so desensitised to bones that we often have them lying beside our pillows/ forget that we shouldn't scratch an itch while studying bones. Edit: I meant to say that the archaeologist/presenter has probably become desensitised to ancient relics/artifacts/mummies to a certain degree because of years of exposure...

      2. Jinxed Sphinx

        @Mac and Cheese they also made a “rare and expensive” brown pigment / paint out of them!! Wild

      3. Mac and Cheese

        yo, people used to eat mummies, like a delicacy. but, yeah, pretty unhygienic given our current circumstances.

      4. Veego von DOOM- Reviews!

        A "raw " mummy... Lol

      Exodus...Bible....no more slaves to do it...

      1. SurfK9

        The slave thing has been thoroughly debunked. The housing of paid workers was excavated years ago. Plus the story of the exodus is absurd.

    78. Relaxation Medication

      Is that Carrot Tops mom?

    79. קישור יעקב

      Why did the Egyptians stop building pyramids? Because My Israelite people were liberated from Egypt and set out to their promised land. This set in motion the end of the age of worshipping the pagan sun and moon gods of Nimrod's descendant nations which became Babylon, Egypt, Greece, and Rome, Aztec, Miyan, many of the Arab cultures, among others. This is also why we see pyramids around the world dating to 3-6,000 years ago. When Babel was destroyed, the people were scattered across the globe. With them, they took their pagan worship of the sun and moon gods, and their building of pyramids to house them. All going back to the original pyramid of Babel destroyed by God. They were simply building what they knew. In time, Monotheism took over, whether through Judaism, Christianity, or Islam, and this practice of building a tower to and for, your gods ended.

    80. Larry Nevarez

      Ancient Egypt reached the same that all groups of people eventually come to reach, God’s or God. Seems to me that, it’s unavoidable, maybe even fixed, and any lack of it’s upkeep, leads to the groups break up. The stronger and longer control of religion the governance of the group has, correlates with the growth, power and longevity of the groups. Amazing is that we have gotten this far.

    82. StephenRahrig

      Wait a sec I’m several minutes in and there’s absolutely no mention of why they stopped building pyramids. Is this just clickbait?

      1. Mike Kins

        Sorry to burst your bubble the Egyptian didn't build the pyramids. The stone quarry has Erosion that shows to be over 12000 years old. Long before the Egyptians.

      2. Vero Nica

        I'm at 27:49 and still nothing. giving up. her voice is so annoying.

      3. Rx Zabaleta

        Was it clickbait? Im barely starting

    83. mark watts

      Because they never built them ...they were already there..as they said.

    84. Chris Bevan

      Same reason the government won't build another Millennium Dome.

    85. Ahzarayah Eliab Zebulun

      Because it wasn’t egyptians building it. The ones who builded it left in 726 or around that time 2 Esdras 13:40-50

        @Ahzarayah Eliab Zebulun Well, present it?

      2. Ahzarayah Eliab Zebulun

        @0x777 yes i do

      3. 0x777

        An interesting hypothesis. Do you have any evidence to back it up?

    86. Robert Rock

      they lost the ark of the covenant... that was there 'power' base. and the lost communication with other pyramids /peoples around the world, the was the depiction of the vision of Joseph... this vid is heresy

    87. Kotor

      is there a reason as to why the statues at the beginning had the noses and arms broken? Or were they simply just broken?

      1. Rx Zabaleta

        I think they broke over time

      i always wondered how much wild game the egyptians ate. they were surrounded by plentiful wild game of all kinds i wonder how much of it they consumed on any regular basis or how much they just relied on domesticated animals.
