 Memphis / Saqqara
There had been burials at Saqqara for generations before the 3rd Dynasty, but it was with the burial of Djoser that the necropolis of Saqqara was to become much more popular.
Djoser's funerary complex was to completely command the saqqara skyline with the construction of the first pyramid in Egypt's history (not a smooth-sided pyramid of later pharaohs, but a six stepped construction).
During the Middle Kingdom, the burials of the pharaohs of Egypt moved away from Saqqara to the Faiyum - similarly the nobles and court officials of the period also chose to move their tombs away from Saqqara to be buried close to their kings.
