The Pyramids of Giza embody one of the most critical steps of the evolution of the burial architecture of the ancient Egyptians. In the very beginning, the deceased's body was only buried in a hole in the ground. Afterwards, a small structure, or a Mastaba, was built on top of this hole.
The first attempt to construct a pyramid was carried out by Djoser, who belonged to the 3rd dynasty, when his architect, Amenhotep, erected the famous step pyramid in Saqqara. Senfru, the father of Cheops, achieved the first proper pyramid in Dahshur.
