Mud brick vaults

Ancient mud brick vaults from Egypt’s ancient capital of Thebes. The two main building materials in ancient Egypt were unbaked mud brick and stone. Stone was used for tombs (eternal dwellings of the dead) and temples. Mud brick was used for most other buildings, even royal palaces and fortresses. Israel was put to forced labor to produce mud brick for Egypt’s builders.
