Stone Craftsmanship - Sakkara 3,000 BC

This photograph shows the "Little Temple" which lies to the south-west of the great open space or court at Sakkara. As will be seen, two of the pillars that supported the temple roof have been repaired and re-erected in their original positions. They are about nineteen feet high, and of a graceful fluted design. The Step-pyramid in the background, built by Zoser, first of the pyramid builders, not as a tomb but as a memorial.
