Private Burials in Pharaonic EgyptThe Giza necropolis has a prolonged history and preserved almost all types of ancient burial monuments known today from Egypt. One of the most distinctive is the rock-cut tomb that became an alternative to mastabas more common for the Memphite region. Giza rock-cut tombs are intricately connected with the history of Egyptology and remain very puzzling for modern archaeologists.
