Walt: write an information report.

The Egyptians built the Pyramids because when the Pharaohs died they would place the body into the pyramids. It was the final resting place for the Pharaoh. The Egyptians would also leave precious things for him like gold, jewellery and much more.

The embalmers (people who looked after the dead corps) would wash the body. Then after that the embalmers would take out all the insides and put them into four special jars. Afterwards, the embalmers would put sacks of salt around the corps and dry out the body. Then finally wrapped the mummy with bandages. These mummies were places in the pyramids as the final resting place.

It is believed that it took about 20/30 years for the slaves of Egypt to build the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Great pyramid is located on the Giza plateau. It is roughly, 21 km south west of Cairo and on the west bank of the Nile River.
