The Pyramid Builders Left a Journal

Well, I didn’t hear about this when it came out a month ago, but it’s pretty darned cool.

Archeologists excavating an old Egyptian harbor found a lot of old Egyptian boats and old Egyptian records – including Inspector Merer’s account of transporting stone blocks that would form the casing for Pharaoh Khufu’s pyramid, from the quarries at Tura, and down along canals and the Nile. Three months of timetables and documentation for a 200-man team.

Paperwork. It survives everything.
