The Old Kingdom of Egypt (c. 2613-2181 BCE) is also known as the 'Age of the Pyramids' or 'Age of the Pyramid Builders' as it includes the great 4th Dynasty when King Sneferu perfected the art of pyramid building and the pyramids of Giza were constructed under the kings Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure. The historical records of this period, the 4th-6th Dynasties of Egypt, are scarce and historians regard the history of the era as literally 'written in stone'.   (By Joshua J. Mark) --AHE

The Pyramid of the Niches, Veracruz-Llave, Mexico is a pre-Columbian archeological site and one of the largest and most important cities of the Classic era of Mesoamerica.
