One of Germany's leading Egyptologists Gunter Dreyer proposed the theory of building the pyramids of Egypt.
Dreyer, director of the German Archaeological Institute in Cairo, said that the pyramids, most likely the only walls around the tombs of the pharaohs.
Such a theory scholar put forward after a detailed study of the tomb of Pharaoh Hasehemvi, who ruled Egypt in the XXVII century BC, and the pyramid of Djoser, who reigned about 2780-2760 BC, located in Saqqara.
The Pyramid of Djoser built in the likeness of the tomb Hasehemvi in which there are overhanging walls and interior walls are twice as thick. In the tomb of the pharaoh built one way, which is also characteristic of the pyramids built later.
In another royal tomb at Abydos, which was built a little later, the tomb of the pharaoh Hasehemvi, archaeologists found similarity mound over the central part of the underground complex.
The scientist claims that the tomb Hasehemvi also had one of the Wall, which later became the hallmark of hundreds of pyramids scattered across the western part of the Nile Valley.
