When the Giza plateau was first selected for the site of these monuments, the climate was lush and semitropical. The entire plateau was built up in order to preserve it from the annual flooding of the river Nile. There are foundation stones weighing tens of thousands of pounds, dwarfing anything on the surface, that underlie the entire site... hundreds of sq. acres!
