The Daily Life of a Pharaoh
Transcript of The Daily Life of a Pharaoh
"Egyptians did not question the beliefs which had been handed down to them; they did not desire change in their society. Their main aim throughout their history was to emulate the conditions which they believed had existed at the dawn of creation" (Rosalie 1988).
The Ancient Egyptians believed that the Pharaoh would become a god when he died. This is why the afterlife was important to the Pharaoh. He would spend most of his life preparing for his death by building his tomb. After his death, he would be mummified and wrapped in linen. He would then be placed in a sarcophagus, which was the coffin, inside a pyramid. Tombs usually had around fifteen rooms and in most of the rooms mountains of gold and jewels were placed so that in the pharaoh’s afterlife he would be wealthy.
