Tutankhamun may have had some Hyksos ancestry, which would not be surprising, but the Hyksos were from western Asia, not northern Europe. More to the point, the Hyksos rule didn't begin until the fifteenth dynasty, ca. 1674 B.C. However, the great pyramid of Giza was built in the fourth dynasty, ca. 2580 B.C., nine centuries earlier.

King Tut has absolutely nothing to do with the pyramids. It's the equivalent of arguing that the Maya did not build the Great Pyramid of Cholula because Cortés was Spanish.

I understand the function of a castle but what's the point of replicating moats and the like for these estates that are basically the equivalent of a single house.

It's not like they're meant to withstand a siege. I can't imagine the nobility holing up in one of these from their enemies or from angry peasants. I assume it's just for the aesthetics?

Part of evolving is renovation

Functionality > Form

In the classical period all architecture was built for few reasons, government and religion

Nowadays a city is better off building a park than a museum.

Europe has old architecture everywhere... then something like that Earthquake that happened to Italy last autumn DESTROY these CLASSIC buildings with people INSIDE!
