The first model I made was a model of the Great Pyramid of Giza. I used a large piece of cardboard for the base, and I used raw sugar cubes to build the pyramid Origin and Significance of the Great Pyramid. Ancient Egyptians were the first people to practice mummification, precipitated by their belief that the body needed to remain intact for its life after death. This also explains why the interior of their tombs were lavishly decorated, furnished and re-supplied by priests with food. These tombs, the pyramids, were built to house the great leaders, the Pharaohs, in the afterlife, as it was believed that the spirits of the dead would return to receive nourishment Historical Researches Into the Politics, Intercourse, and Trade of the Carthaginians, Ethiopians, and Egyptians, Volume 2.

A hieroglyph can represent a word, a sound, or a silent determinative; and the same symbol can serve different purposes in different contexts. Hieroglyphs were a formal script, used on stone monuments and in tombs, that could be as detailed as individual works of art. In day-to-day writing, scribes used a cursive form of writing, called hieratic, which was quicker and easier Zij schreven geschiedenis Historische documenten uit het Oude Nabije Oosten (2500 - 100 v.

Changes in the isotopic ratios showed researchers that, for a time, the region was subjected to extremely dry conditions.
