Asked in Slavery, Ancient Egypt, Pyramids
How did the slaves build the pyramids?
slaves made pyramids with their bare hands and with the muscle of their bare bodies actually, slaves didnt build the pyramids at all. Paid labourers recruite from poor villages built the pyramids. these workers were fed well and had accesss to medical care. the myth about slaves building the pyramids came from an ancient Greek historian named Hero dotus. not only were these workers well paid and fed, they were much respected for their work and were buried in a simple tomb right near the pyramids of their rulers. these tombs had jars that were once filled with bread and beer to supply workers for the afterlife. no slave would have been given so many benefits and the honor to be bured next to the pyramids. the notion that hebrew slaves built the pyramids is a completely ridiculous myth.

How much did ancient Egyptian metal workers get paid?
People didn't get paid like we do today. They got food, some got housing while working on the pyramids. Workers on the pyramids were a combination of slave labor and required work for the population. Copper tools were used and this required constant reworking and making the tools since copper is a soft metal and doesn't last long.

Asked in Ancient Egypt, Pyramids
Did Egyptian Pharaohs pay laborers to build pyramids?
No they were slaves and did not get paid. They were given food, water and shelter but not clothing, slaves went naked. That is a commonly held misconception. The pyramid builders were paid, though they were conscripted to work in the pyramids during times when they were not needed for planting or harvesting crops.
