Ancient tombs in egypt
The world famous Egyptian tombs are very famous and beautiful. The most well-known and prominent of these are the pyramids in the Valley of the Kings or the tombs of the Pyramids Age.
These tombs were made according to the status that the person had while they were alive. For example, poor people were buried in tombs covered with straw. There were only one or two potsherds in the graves of poor people, and sometimes burials were built next to the graves of rich people.
There were two different construction styles, the Lower Egyptian tombs and the Upper Egyptian tombs. Wood and reed were used in the construction of the lower tomb. There were sometimes three to five mummies in the tombs.
The upper tombs were the tombs carved into the underground bedrock. The stone-carved tombs, though not elaborately prepared and decorated, are indicative of a higher class status in Egyptian society.
