From 8,000 to 3,000 BC, Egypt was ruled by the Goa'uld Supreme System Lord Ra. During his reign, he took some Egyptians and transported them through the Stargate on a remote planet later known as Abydos. He used the other Egyptians as slaves to build monuments like the Great Pyramids, used to serve as landing paths for his mothership. Around 3,000 BC, a rebellion took place and Ra had to flee from Egypt and Earth (Stargate, SG1: "Moebius", Part 1, "Moebius", Part 2)
