Pyramids

were monumental

structures which contained the

tombs of the pharaohs . Built

of limestone blocks, one ancient Egyptian pyramid

was 450 ft. tall. That's taller than a 40 story building!

Pyramids were intended to protect the pharaoh's body buried inside. Dead-end passages were built into the pyramid to trick robbers who came to steal the expensive objects buried with the king. But most of the pyramids were still robbed of their rich contents! The pyramid was just one part of a funerary complex made up of several buildings which served the pharaoh's afterlife.
