Researcher University of Amsterdam , The Netherlands , uncover the riddle . Apparently, the ancient Egyptians rely on simple key , wet sand , in order to transport the blocks of stone sculptures and large to pass through the vast desert .
As reported by the Daily Mail , Friday, May 2, 2014 , we expect strong to transport the statue and the stone blocks , utilizing the Egyptian society sled with sand in front of the train that soaking wet. This method is seen to facilitate transport of the load .

To test this theory , researchers in the laboratory to demonstrate the scheme . Experiments show moisture transporting sand determines success . For proper humidity can share the power draw required .
To put the water in the sand , researchers consider the pull strength and stiffness of sand .
Now , researchers are using the rheometer to determine the stiffness of the sand . This measurement to indicate how much power is needed to tame the volume of sand .
The experimental results show that the pull force required decreases proportional to the stiffness of sand .
" The presence of the proper amount of water , wet desert is about twice as strong as dry sand , " said the research team .
The scheme facilitates the use of water in the sand toboggan run , considering there is no pile of sand that inhibits as in the case of dry sand .
This theory is strengthened by researchers paintings on tomb walls Djehutihotep , which describes the transport of tricks sculpture and large stone blocks . Painting exactly such an experiment conducted by researchers .
" Painting a wall in the tomb Djehutihotep clearly shows someone standing in front of the sled is pulled and poured water on the sand that was in front of the train , " said the researcher . ( umi )
