    Ancient Egypt is known for its magnificent and beautiful tombs. The most well known are within the pyramids in the Valley of the Kings or the tombs from the Age of the Pyramids (during the Old Kingdom, 2650 to 2150 B. C. spanning from 3rd to 6th Dynasty). While these elaborate tombs were quite ornate, the bodies of people from the lower castes met with humbler ends.

    The tombs that were built can be classified by the status one had while alive. The poorest people were buried in shallow graves scooped out of the sand with a straw outer covering. These graves were common in predynasty. Many of these bodies were wrapped in linen and found in a fetal position. There would be some grave goods beside the body, but what was left was "a pot or two, a little meat, or perhaps a necklace of shells."
