Great Pyramids

  • Located in Giza, the Great Pyramids were the resting places of kings and other people of wealth.

  • Originally covered with a marble type rock, today they look more like the photos on the right.

  • The Romans defaced them with graffiti and used them for target practice. That’s why the Sphinx doesn’t have a nose.
