Homework Help: Dynamic Earth

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, January 5, 2011 at 7:41pm.

In Egypt, the Great Pyramids of Giza face slightly east of true north. Explain why the pyramids might not line up with true north as builders likely intended. Assume that the builders 4500 years ago could determine directions accurately.

I tried searching internet for this question, but didnt come up with anything. Does this have anything to do with the continental drift theory?
