Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs
The Ancient Egyptians buried most of their kings and Pharaohs in huge pyramids that took about 10 years to build, but near the end of their reign, they buried Pharaohs like Tutunkhamun and Heterpheres in tombs dug into rock, so that robbers could not discover the grave. The main burial customs that the Egyptians had were mummification, prayers, 'magic spells' and goods to help them in the afterlife. After the burial, the people would gather together and have a celebration.
