They mostly built steps and stairs to get from one level to another but there are ramps here and there
especially for lower inclines where steps are less efficient for most walkers. The earliest attested usage
of ramps is as a walkway;
1717a. A ramp is trodden for thee to the Dȝ.t to the place where Śȝḥ is.
This usage of the word comes from long after the great pyramid buiulding age and is in reference to a
walkway and not anything like a highway ramp or construction ramp. There are numerous usage of the
words "steps" and "stairs" in this exact same work as the means by which the dead king accesses heaven.
The word "ramp" isn't attested at all from the great pyramid building era or earlier!!! It would be quite an
achievement to build a great pyramid with ramps but an even greater achievement to do it without ever
using the word.
These so called ramps they have found are all pretty flimsy, all point away from or to the base of the py-
ramid, and have not been sjhown to have anything to do with dragging stones. They actually constitute
fairly good evidence that ramps were not used to lift stones on the great pyramids since they can not be
integral to any ramping system and imply stones were delivered to the base.
There are far easier way to lift stones into a pile than to create ramps and drag the pile up them. So why
is everyone married to ramps? Why would anyone want to do it the hard way? Why would anyone do it
the hard way and then leave lots of evidence they did it the easy way?
