Finishing with our surveys of the overall history of the Old Kingdom, this lecture will cover the main accomplishments of the Early Old Kingdom when the most complex and then the very largest pyramids were built. We will be looking at how the ancient Egyptians were able to construct these massive monumental buildings, but also how the development of these burial places developed through time.
