Subjects: Egypt travel photography pyramids (tombs) Jzah, Ahrmt al- Pyramids--Egypt--Al-Qhirah Page size: 33 x 38.1 cm Annotations: Inside each Pyramid, usually low down was a sepulchral chamber for the body of the king– Each king began to build his pyramid when he ascended the throne. He began to build on a small scale in order that it should be completed during his reign and he continued enlarging it by adding outer layers of stone. If the work on each had been equal, the age of the Pyramids could be told by their size, like incrustations on the bark of a tree. In regard to inscriptions not a single trace is found on the pyramids or in fragments near them, although the travelers' “graffiti” have been found. Over.
