A tomb, a place where the dead goes to have a comfortable journey to the afterlife, is what ancient egyptians use to take the dead to the afterlife. The egyptians believed that the dead don’t just teleport to the afterlife, they need to have a journey to the afterlife. On the walls are hieroglyphics, enigmatic or incomprehensible symbols or writing, of what is going to happen in the journey to the afterlife. To make a tomb you can’t just chuck someone in a hole. You have to have a person to design the tomb to make it hard to find the actual dead body so tomb robbers can’t rob the tomb of it’s riches. But usually whoever creates the design robs the tomb anyway. A tomb can be as big as a classroom or even as big as 4 statues of libertys side by side. Kings/pharaohs usually get a tomb that is a pyramid. Poor people get tombs the are the ones with the bodies buried in sand and the priests or people close to the pharaohs or kings get a tomb in a temple.
