Dashur is also the site of the Bent Pyramid, who was the first attempt at a flat side pyramid and which actually failed. The Egyptians ended up building some of the most impressive structures in the world but they didn't always get it right the first time. There was a little bit of hit and miss. We can only try to imagine the disaster it must have been for them to face a failure after years of work by tens of thousands of subjects of the Pharaoh. Pyramid Engineer must have been a very dangerous trade back then...
