BC 2900 BC- The Great Pyramid complete The great pyramid of egypt is one of the oldest standing monuments in the world from the past. Egypt was one of the richest societies of its time when the pyramid was being built. 2.3 million blocks were used to build the biggest pyramid of the 3. Each block weighs 2.5 ton. I chose this event from the past to establish a connection between the past people of the hierarchy from then and now. Pharaohs back then owned all the land, made laws, collected taxes, also had a responsibility to take care of all Egypt. But now the people of the highest power have only 1/9 of the responsibility they did then. 499 BC- Work on Grand Canal The chinese began working on the Grand Canal under the Eastern Chou dynasty. The goal of the canal was to connect the Yellow and Yangtze River. Work and improvement on the canal continued for 2,00 years. The Grand Canal connects Hai River, Yellow River, Huai River
