🇮🇹Le piramidi di Giza, Egitto.
Il termine piramide deriva dalla lingua greca pyramis (πυραμίς) che significa letteralmente "della forma del fuoco" (da pyr- "fuoco"). Questa tipologia architettonica fu realizzata come monumento funerario eretto al di sopra della tomba del faraone. Le tre piramidi risalgono alla IV dinastia (2625-2510 a.C.), cioè a quel periodo della storia dell' Antico Egitto detto Antico Regno. La piramide di Cheope è la più grande e la più antica, segue la piramide di Chefren, figlio di Cheope ed infine quella più piccola di Micerino, figlio di Chefren. Stando ad alcuni studiosi questi tre enormi monumenti sepolcrali rientrerebbero in un grande ed articolato progetto astronomico fatto realizzare dai faraoni nel corso del tempo; infatti, stando ad alcuni di essi, queste sembrerebbero perfettamente allineate con le stelle che formano la cintura di Orione, secondo altri con un altro gruppo di stelle della costellazione del Cigno.

🇬🇧The pyramids of Giza, Egypt.
The term pyramid is derived from the Greek language pyramis (πυραμίς) which literally means "the form of fire" (from pyr- "fire"). This architectural style was built as a funerary monument erected above the tomb of Pharaoh.The three pyramids date back to the fourth dynasty (2625-2510 BC), during the period of the Old Kingdom of ancient Egypt. The pyramid of Cheops is the largest and the oldest, the second is the pyramid of Khafre, son of Cheops and finally the smaller one of Mycerinus, son of Chephren (Khafre). According to some scholars, these three huge burial monuments fall into a large and articulated astronomical project commissioned by the pharaohs over time; In fact, according to some scholars, they seem perfectly aligned with the stars that form the belt of Orion, according to others with another group of stars in the constellation of Cygnus.

Incredibly well made early Archaic possibly Paleo period flake knife I found yesterday. The quality of workmanship on this artifact exceeds that seen on many arrowheads or spear points. #arrowhead #arrowheads #artifact #artifacts #nativeamerican #archaeology #insitu
