How were other ancient Egyptians buried?
The ancient Egyptians believed that it was important to be buried properly. A proper burial would allow them to live again in the afterlife. Thus, most people who could afford to, spent a lot of time and effort making sure that they would be buried well.
Most ordinary ancient Egyptians were probably buried in the desert. Their relatives would wrap their body in a simple cloth and bury it with some everyday objects and food.
Those with more wealth would be able to afford a better burial. The graves of some craftsmen and workers have been found containing a mummified body as well as bread, fruit, amulets and furniture for the afterlife.
Nobles and very wealthy people were often buried in tombs that we call 'mastabas'. This kind of tomb has an underground burial chamber and an above ground offering chapel. These tombs would contain the person's mummified body, as well as food, jewellery and special objects.
