Over many centuries the ancient Egyptians developed a way of preserving the bodies so they would remain like-like. The process included embalming the bodies and wrapping them in strips of linen. Today, we call this process mummification.
Love was an important part of marriage in Ancient Egypt. The pharaoh could have 7 wives but only one was custom to them all, she could buy and sell goods, own property, and had many more rights than women use to have.
There are many sphinx in ancient Egypt but the most famous is the Great Sphinx. A sphinx is a mythical creature with a body of a lion and head of a pharaoh. The Great Sphinx guards King Khufu’s pyramid at Giza, Cairo.
A tomb was believed to be a burial place for pharaohs and queens. These tombs sometimes had some belongings of the one placed there. The walls of a tomb were sometimes decorated with hieroglyphics and other drawings.
The Khufu Pyramid is also known as the Great Pyramid. It is one of the largest human-made structures in the world. The Khufu Pyramid at Giza, Cairo is 481 feet in height. It was constructed of more than 2 million stone blocks, which they made their own tools to lift them.
