When the powerful Egyptians died they were put inside of a pyramid all wrapped up and put in their cases. If they had animals they were put in there too dead as well and then went into the after life.

The entrance leads to a long shaft inside that travels deep underground to an empty chamber, the real chambers where they buried pharaohs and queens is covered by a wall of bricks. it splits in the middle of the original shaft and goes to the upper part of the pyramid. there they stored the mummies and canopic jars in which they put organs from the body. there was always a vent or airway in the chamber to the outside of the pyramids; this allowed the spirit of the god to come and go.
