One of the foremost experts on Old Kingdom tombs looks at the burial chamber, its significance, and preparation, concluding that the "house of death is for life." The Egyptian tomb was not considered simply as a grave for burying the corpse of a dead person, but rather as a house of eternity in which the deceased would spend an everlasting life. The author also discusses the architectural designs and characteristics of burial chambers associated with the mastabas and rock-cut tombs, and studies the development of decoration on the walls of tombs.
