Moving the blocks that make up the pyramids is no big deal.
Imagine a pair of wooden wheels on a short, thick axle. The
axle is the carved (or partially carved) block, and the wheels
are circles with a large square cut out of the middle. With
such a device, a single person could move the block several miles
in a single day (on a hrad, flat road). By wrapping ropes around
the block, attached to points on the wheels, you can drag the whole
thing on sand, uphill, etc. Make the wheels fat for soft ground
and narrower for hard ground.
Mystery solved. Now go home.
