Did you know...

Imhotep is considered the worlds first named architect and built the Step Pyramid over 4000 years ago.  Imhotep reproduced in stone what had been previously built of other materials. The facade of the enclosure wall had the same niches as the tombs of mud brick, the columns resembled bundles of reed and papyrus, and stone cylinders at the lintels of doorways represented rolled-up reed screens. Much experimentation was involved, which is especially clear in the construction of the pyramid in the center of the complex.  The pyramid consists of 6 steps and is 200 feet high.
