What he said:

The Egyptians had plenty of slaves taken from Nubia, however the pyramids were built by Egpytian, land owning, free people between their 2 anual harvests
User avatar #94 to #4 - BrownBearninetysix ONLINE (08/03/2013) [-]
Yeah, but a ******** of people still died building them.

Lehner, the guy who made the discovery in Giza that led to the conclusion that paid workers made the pyramids, admits that there were thousands of slaves in Egypt. There are two main discoveries that led to this conclusion: The bones of cattle (which is assumed to only be provided to upperclass egyptians) and the graffiti within the pyramids that describes different groups or unions made amongst the builders of the pyramid. There is actually no evidence that states that these workers were paid, that the majority of them ate the meat from the cattle found, that Giza was a special occasion because of a possible decline in slavery, etc. There are any number of conclusions that can be made, however there are well kept records stating that there was slavery in Egypt, that these slaves helped to build enormous structures (which is widely believed to be many of the pyramids) and that conditions for these slaves were fairly poor (as is to be expected from slave drivers).
tl;dr While there is some evidence in regards to "paid workers" that aided in building the pyramids, the jobs that these workers held is not entirely known, and the evidence leading to the conclusion is fairly open for interpretation.

My brother is an archeologist and informed me that the reason the paid worker thing gets thrown around so often is because the Egyptian government will kick you out of Egypt, and not allow you to be anywhere near their artifacts. If there were slaves in Egypt than the Jews may have some claim to Jerusalem, and the government refuses to give Jerusalem any form of legitimacy, even one so little as this. But it is well known that most of the workers in Egypt were slaves. It’s just not talked about because people who study ancient Egypt like to be able to go there.

Maybe the supervisors, but the general labor that pushed everything around was not. The source of the elbow grease is what he was talking about.

Who used slaves
User avatar #10 to #4 - demandsgayversion (08/03/2013) [-]
I think I remember hearing that the whole 'jew slaves in egypt' thing is only from the bible, with no historical backing.
#17 to #4 - IamSofaKingdom (08/03/2013) [-]
They didn't find evidence that it was purely paid contractors, just evidence that those workers were used. I would think, in all likelihood, that it was a mixture. If you have back breaking work (literally) that needs to get done and a mass of slaves nearby, my doubt is high that they would be entirely against using them in the construction. Maybe the slaves were used to bring the stone to the sight and contractors carved and placed it, who knows, definitively? not us.

The workers were treated like slaves.
#13 to #4 - anon (08/03/2013) [-]
I understand the historical backing behind that, but honestly I'm not sure if I completely believe it. I mean, who's to say it was really built by contractors? The Egyptians? They've lied before when it made them look better, and think about it: if you left enormous monuments behind which would be the most memorable construction of your culture, would you want to admit it was built by a group of people you believe to be lesser than you? Like I said, they've lied before.
#173 to #4 - anon (08/03/2013) [-]
Slavery, in the past, wasn't like now. Most of the slaves were workers in exchange of something, food, accomodation,... even money.
#32 to #4 - iraniie (08/03/2013) [-]
I was on a tour guide in Cairo and he told us that it was not slaves nor contractors as you say.
The Nile would flood for about half the year and all the farmers would have their farms completely flooded. They could not make a living then and the pharaoh hired the farmers to build the pyramids in the mean time, so it was mainly farmers.
User avatar #34 to #32 - makedonski (08/03/2013) [-]
yeah, he payed the farmers. They probably signed a contract.

paid contractors.

The pyramids weren't built just because of slaves, there were 3 major groups
Career craftsmen, people to whom building was their livelihood that signed up
People who wanted to be part of it, much like if your neighbourhood, or school were trying to break a world record, you would want to be part of it.
Prisoners, prisoners of war, criminals, etc. This is where the whole "they were slaves" thing came from, they used prisoner labour, but only first generation prisoners of war, and criminals, it wasn't like the Egyptians went "you guys are jewish, build us a pyramid". In fact, the prisoners of war, were prisoners of civil war, they have yet to find a large enough amount of bones that can be confirmed as Semitic to conclusively say that they were slaves,
#215 to #200 - anon (08/04/2013) [-]
wow, someone that understands it... For further clarification, They joined because they believed that their Pharaoh king was a living god, and that by helping build his eternal resting place they would earn them selfes a place in heaven along side their god-king

Pyramids weren't built by slaves, and especially not Hebrew slaves, that was just a story. I know it's a joke, but it was bugging me.

Damn this was cynical and depressing. Why do you people like this guy?
#194 to #186 - mantou (08/03/2013) [-]
because the ' as long as things keep working and the corpses are not in my backyard'- notion, is a common notion
#210 to #186 - anon (08/03/2013) [-]
Because it's the truth
User avatar #201 to #186 - arstya (08/03/2013) [-]
Because he speaks the truth, and tries to teach people.

He's not really depressing as much as he is accepting.
User avatar #191 to #186 - BigDoktor (08/03/2013) [-]
Because text and pictures don't do him justice.
#206 to #186 - anon (08/03/2013) [-]
cynical and depressing? he said the truth (appart from the pyramid thing), he even said we could have lower-levels of technology and luxury and avoid slavery and apathy, which probably isn't true at all. i'm a cynic. louis ain't.

In asterix&obelix cleopatra they protest for higher payments. So I guess they were payed workers. It's just a film though

Not only that, they were fed pretty luxuriously. They ferried fish across the desert so the builders could eat well.

But I thought there was a Did you know post a while ago that said the Pyramids were built by paid laborers, not slaves.

Not paid labourers, but tax paid out in labour.
