    “In around his 30th year on the throne, Sneferu abandoned the Bent Pyramid as his burial place, although, as at Meidum, he later completed it. Instead, he began work on the North, or Red, Pyramid which was built at the gentler slope of 43° 22’ from the beginning. In many ways this was more elegant than the Bent Pyramid, where the builders obviously struggled and experimented with various solutions to the structural problems they were faced with. The North Pyramid shows none of this – it is a neatly planned and executed construction, built with an efficient use of materials.”
