             Is that a comma or a period?...

In Cairo last Thursday, the Egyptian Museum displayed the
country's oldest papyrus, which was discovered 3 years ago.
The papyrus dates to 4,500 years ago and reveals how workers
carried the stones that made the Giza Pyramid, what they ate
and details about the workers' daily lives.

The Egyptian Chief of Antique Structures, Halit el-Anany,
noted that "the papyrus was found by a 13-person team of
French and Egyptian archeologists in a cave within Wadi el-
Jarf, the oldest port in the world. One of the papyrus belonged
to a worker named Marr, who wrote about the pyramid
construction work over the course of 3 months.  Marr explains
how they transported the heavy pyramid stones over the canals
of the Nile River."

The second papyrus details how much food each worker received
and the third one has statistics and management information
related to the construction of the pyramids.
