REPRODUCED BY PERMISSION. the king of Upper Egypt and the king of Lower Egypt. Both buildings are only façades and may have been buried along with all the dummy buildings in the complex after completion. These buildings attest to the earliest political division in Egyptian thinking, the division between Upper and Lower Egypt. The Egyptians often called their country “The Two Lands” (tawy) in reference to this division. The king was actually regarded as a king of two different places that were combined in his person.

Many Egyptologists assume that the Egyptians used these tiles in a similar way at the Umm el Gaab burials. Builders probably intended the entire underground burial to reproduce the king’s house on earth so that he would have a home in the next world. Thus this pattern of designing the burial after houses on earth began with the very earliest royal tombs. Above ground was a platform, built of brick. The platform was marked by a stele (an upright slab of stone), that was inscribed with the king’s name.

Egyptologists may never know definitively why such great effort was expended to build the South Tomb. 14 SOURCES Dieter Arnold, “Royal Cult Complexes of the Old and Middle Kingdoms,” Temples of Ancient Egypt, edited by Byron E. : Cornell University Press, 1997): 31–85.
