Advanced Cities

The Egyptians were famous for their complex institutions to store things, like the pyramids. The reason that they are complex is because it took lots of manpower and archetechtual design to create them for the kings who died.This making of the pyramids turned into a daily lifestyle for the egyptians to honor their fallen emperors. They're unique shape is still iconic to this day. We still revel in the fact that people had made these pyramids so many years ago just out of stone bricks.
