Lessor Tombs

The rock faces of Petra were covered with tombs. Every where you looked you could find them for Kings, wealthy, and not so wealthy carved in to the rock.

I am standing by a tomb with more tombs in the back ground

You can see lots of tombs in the rock face far in the distance. Now look just to the left of my feet and see that square hole in the rock. That is a tomb of a  not so wealthy citizen of Petra. They dug straight down and dropped th poor fellow in feet first. The mixed a kind of cement with the excavated rock and filled it up.

You do what you have to do.
