We ask you

Last week we took a survey to see if you approve of the building of Khufu's pyramid . Lets see what you guys said.


I say do it!!! He is very respected and deserves to have a big pyramid. I think he is the best Pharaoh yet.


Do not do it. It is a waste of money and time. Why does he even need a pyramid anyway? He hasn't done anything to help Egypt so why does he deserve the special attention of having a pyramid.


I say, on with the pyramid.


Newest and bigest sculpture was just made by Hutmose, a world renown artist. Visit it in front of the palace.

Fashion Style

Women these days wear simple sheath dresses called kalasiris. Our clothing is more consetvative than mens clothing. Children don’t wear clothing until they are 6 years old. The children will wear the same style of clothing as their parents. We are very skilled at making jewlery such as necklaces, bracelets, and anklets. You can buy kalasiris at the store Egyptdales across the street from the great pyramids. A great deal is out so buy your kalasiris now for 20 deben.

How is it like to work for Pharaoh Khufu?


"I trade goods to people who want what i have and they have what I want. I also am a servant for Khufu, but I don't like to tell people that. I am being demanded all day, every day, so hopefully Khufu doesn't see this because than I will be doomed. Do not tell this to anyone else who works for him. I don't get paid at all which is unfair."
