A SCIENTIFICAL, TECHNICAL, AND OPERATIVE RESEARCH

This article presents a methodological and scientific research. It is technical in its application and operative in the determination of the tools and their usage. It follows up on the “mechanical” theories and it is devoted to develop a “constructive system” as a whole - which is innovative among the archaeological researches “in situ”.
The research is based on taught knowledge and practical skills in reference to the “original, interactive and predicative” model and, on the verification, through archaeological observations, of the construction work and its surroundings, “in situ”. The reasoning will be lead by a concern in logic and coherence.

The three great sleek pyramids of the Giza plateau are located at the centre of the quarries the material the pyramids were built with comes from


Reconstruction of the Giza area, suggested by G. Goyon

The research rests on three fundamental postulates:
