Question by Lovin29: If the wealthy Egyptians were mummified, how than were the commoners buried?
We all know that the Egyptians practiced mummification, and went through an elaborate embalming ritual for the prominent members- rulers, wealthy, etcetera.
So how than were the common or poor members of Egyptian society buried at that time?

Trying to remember back a few years now lol but i think they were buried out in the desert in shallow graves, sometimes with small clay pots and things with them. Thats why the poor mummys they find in egypt are copper coloured because of the sand, i think lol. its been awhile. hope ive helped.
