Coming in at number 8 in the countdown of the Top 10 Ancient Egyptian Myths and Misconceptions, episode 37 of the Ancient Art Podcast explores the age-old myth that the "Pyramids were Built by Slaves." From the tomes of ancient literature to the annals of modern media, the myth that slaves built the pyramids just can't seem to die. In this episode, we explore the ancient literary sources for the confusion, including The Bible, Herodotus, and Josephus. But current excavations on the Giza plateau tell a very different story. What can we learn from the graves of the pyramid builders? Who were they and what were their lives like? Where did they live? Is there a Lost City of the Pyramid Builders?
