Maybe it’s because I’m an accountant, but I do love a good mystery.
For example, did you know that the world’s oldest man-made buildings are generally much bigger and better engineered than anything else built later?
Take the three pyramids of Giza…
The traditional explanation is that they were built as tombs for three Pharaohs – Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure – who ruled Egypt around c. 2575-c. 2465 BCE.
But the interior of the pyramids is unlike that of any of the tombs found in the Valley of Kings, where Tutankhamun (c.1341–c.1323 BCE), Ramesses II (c.1303–1213 BCE) and other important Pharaohs were buried.
And later pyramids, such as the Pyramid of Djoser (c. 2700-c. 2601 BC) at Saqqara, are much smaller and more crudely built.
It’s almost as if the Giza pyramids were originally built for a purpose other than burial. And the Egyptians who are credited with building them were unable to use the same construction methods for similar structures that they built much later.
In fact, matching the engineering precision of the original architects using modern tech would be a struggle for anyone. But with the kinds of tools that the ancient Egyptians are known to have possessed, it’d be an impossible task.
Clearly there are questions still to be answered if we want to understand who built the Giza pyramids, how they did it and for what purposes.
However, when it comes to your business accounts there should be no mystery.
