Egyptian Pyramids

Post  Joshua T on Thu Oct 17, 2013 7:39 pm

The pyramid was important to the Egyptian civilization. It represented them in many different ways. For example, you could find evidence of their social structure when a Pharaoh was buried inside with his belongings. Not only a Pharaoh was buried in a pyramid, also other people of the higher classes such as a Vizier, a Scribe, a Noble, or a Priest. Bow a days when you draw the social structure of the Egyptians it is shaped like a pyramid. The most important person was at the top and the least important people were at the bottom, such as a slave. As soon as you enter one of these pyramids you can instantly see the hieroglyphics written on the walls inside as decoration. Egyptians believed in reincarnation which is why they buried the most important people with all their jewels and belongings. They felt that if the mummified the body they could preserve it so that it could travel to the afterlife safely.

The Egyptians also did the three pyramids at Giza, which were the three main pyramids that are still standing now adays because they were very well built. They are also symmetric, which shows us that the Egyptians were very advanced in architecture. Good job Joshua! Very Happy

The pyramids that they worshiped so much where built by slaves. They went through so much sufferance just to transport those thousand blocks that where supper heavy, and yet still did even get to enjoy their creation. However, they were supper important to the Egyptians and also classified their social structure. Gods and kings at the top, and slaves at the bottom. Nice post! Very Happy
