    I’m sure the ancient Egyptians’ version of caulk was a mixture of mud and hay.

    No silicone caulking and even more amazing… no duct tape either!

    Just that they are still there and were made with so many layers of management and supervision is beyond today’s comprehension.

    Wondering if Tom from Valdosta has been listening to Tim Wilson’s comedy about the pyramids?

    The Great Pyramid of Khufu (4th dynasty, 2551-2528 BC) consists of over 2.25 million stone blocks—of many tons each. The "King’s chamber inside was made from red granite blocks weighing over 25 tons that were transported from Aswan, 500 miles away and then there were highly polished white limestone casing blocks (slant-faced but flat topped) that originally covered the outside. It must have been quite a sight in the sunlight. It is believed that mortar was used to evenly place the casing stones but a massive earthquake in 1303 loosened them and they slide down. Many were removed and used to build mosques and fortresses in the area — check out the Alabaster Mosque in Cairo.

    This reminds me of an old episode of the Freakazoid cartoon. Freakazoid and the cop Cosgrove went to a “History of Caulk” museum, and commented on how well the ancient Egyptians knew their caulk.

    Mortar does not hold bricks together; it holds them apart.

    When you work with huge stone legos they pretty much stay where you put them, no adhesive needed.

    Having climbed upon them, I can assure you they used no mortar.
