 DEGREES TO THE PYRAMID
 DJOSER ROI (III DYNASTY) - SAQQARAH
 The pyramid, in the Neterikhet, better known as Djoser, was built shortly after 2630 BC. J.C. Djoser is the first pyramid in the history of Egypt and the oldest building in the world built entirely of stone that has these dimensions. According to its poorly defined, we can see that the architecture of the monument was still hesitant. The building started as a large mastaba and then ended the pyramid to six degrees. It is traditionally attributed to the design architect Imhotep (it was found inscribed the name of Imhotep on the pedestal of a statue of Djoser).

Pyramid of Giza


 One room serdab "close" to the Pyramid of Djoser contained a statue of the pharaoh sitting, this is the first large stone statue royal ever known in Egypt.

Pyramid of Giza


 The king of Sekhemkhet (successor of Djoser) wanted to be building a monument to greater degrees, but this remained an unfinished pyramid and gradually disappeared in the sand. Thus it became known as the "pyramid buried."
 The whole funeral of Shepseskaf, one of the last kings of the Fourth Dynasty, is a pyramid-shaped sarcophagus known as Faraoun Mastaba.
