They believed the human body had to be preserved for their spirit to dwell in the afterlife. Mummification was preformed to preserve the body. Large pyramids were built as tombs for the pharaohs in the Old Kingdom. Later on, tombs cut out of rock were used to bury the pharaohs.
Houses were built out of bricks. The mixture was poured into wooden brick frames or molds. The bricks were then dried by the sun. They were covered with plaster, often pained over with scenes of nature. Most of the houses were built along the Nile.

Garments were draped around the body rather then tailored. Colored patterns were not seen very often. Prior to the New Kingdom, men wore a kilt which fell above the knee. In he New Kingdom wore a short under kilt over which hung a long shirt.
