    No.21 is misleading some of the stones cut for the Pyramids of Giza were quarried in Tura which is a approx 15 km away. So not all stones were obtained in the Giza plateau

    1. The distance from the pyramids to the Nile is 6 miles now.
      It used to run right past the building site and they could unload the
      slabs of limestone and alabaster off the barges from the other bank of the Nile
      while other finer granite and marble had to be barged from the Aswan in Southern Egypt
      560 miles away. So Maybe a smaller number of blocks but still an awesome achievement.
