According to WEBSITE the Catacombs take up 90 acres in total, and go more than twenty meters deep. Similar in size to the Parisian catacombs, the Roman St. Callixtus also yields beautiful artwork in the forms of mosaics, paintings, and large statues. Yet, unlike the Paris catacombs, class arrangements existed in St. Callixtus. Specific areas for Popes separated them from the common folk, and The Crypt of St. Cecilia, known as the Roman patron saint for music, also lies isolated from the rest of the common burial places. Where the Paris catacombs separated the bodies by cemeteries they originally were from, the catacombs of St. Callixtus separated the bodies most commonly by

Green Acres seems to pride itself on being a sort-of “one-stop” funeral choice, with having a mortuary, chapel, and cemetery all within their land. Green Acres Cemetery really surprised me with all of the different types of memorials they had there. While most of the grave markers were traditional-looking headstones, there were also several giant and elaborate memorials. There was one memorial in particular towards the back of the cemetery that had a concrete divider around the whole plot and it contained a whole family. There was a very large memorial in a tombstone shape at the head of the plot that had a picture of the husband, wife, and daughter-who was holding her puppy, and one single date of death for all three of them engraved into it.

An example of Egyptians valuing death/ and afterlife is that they made pyramids for their Pharaohs when they die and mummified them for the after life. In the article, “Tombs” it said, “These monumental pyramids built for the pharaohs Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure housed the royal mummies and their worldly effects thought to protect and be used by the kings in their afterlife,” (Staff ). The Egyptians had many beliefs about afterlife. They believed that when you die a part your soul continues on, so they built pyramids to protect the Pharaoh and other royals. They also used mummification to harness their body.
Egyptians thought the Pharoahs had the powers to do anything they wanted. Like flooding the sea or causing the sun to rise. A big part of the Egyptian cultures, was the belief in the afterlife. To achieve the afterlife the pharaohs would have to be buried in a pyramid. This time period was called the Old Kingdom (2660-2180 B.C).
Akhenaten Akhenaten was born in Thebes, Egypt 1380.
