The Inverted Pyramid of Dhoser

It’s believed a drunken bet may have been the cause of this amazing structure near Tanis. Ten metres high and balancing on a keystone only three metres wide, this structure highlights the technical excellence of the Egyptian engineers of 2300 BC.  This inverted pyramid has been used as a camel shelter for 4,000 years without a single animal being injured.

The Lynx

Golf may not have been invented in Scotland after all, but in Egypt. Evidence for this outrageous claim can be found at The Lynx statue in the Western Desert. This statue clearly shows a human figure swinging a stick at a round object on the ground. The clubs used would have been different to modern day clubs as these Egyptian ‘golfers’ would have been playing, in effect, in one large bunker. It’s possible the holes could have been the mouths of the statues scattered in the 3 square miles of desert around this statue.
