Why are the tombs in ancient Egypt such an important part of ancient Egypt?

The tombs of the ancient Egyptians were important to them because in their religious beliefs the soul was able to return to the body for a visit. That was why the tombs had all the material items of the deceased plus wall paintings depicting everyday life events. This would make the soul or "ka" feel comfortable. In our own time, the ancient tombs give us insight into the lives of the ancient Egyptians and enable us to study their craftsmanship and in some cases their philosophies.
