Them Egyptians was busy folks,

was they not?
The new evidence shows that thousands of laborers transported 170,000 tons of limestone along the River Nile in wooden boats built with planks and rope.

The 2.5-ton blocks were ferried through a system of specially designed canals before arriving at an inland port built just yards away from the base of the Great Pyramid.
So the first thing built was canals and a port.  And when the pyramid was done, all that apparently filled in.  Damn.
