The ancient Egyptians used two bright stars in the Big Dipper and Little Dipper constellations to align their pyramids in a north-south direction, a British Egyptologist says.
When the two stars lay vertically above each other, both would mark the position of true north for the pyramid builders.
However, due to precession, the line joining Mizar and Kochab only drifted into precise alignment with the north pole in 2467 BC, then wandered away (see graphic).
In the third millennium BC, no star sat at the north pole.
Instead, all the stars in the north sky rotated around an imaginary point marking the north pole.
