What is a tomb?

Answer

A tomb is an enclosed space where the dead is put to rest. Sometimes when we think of tombs we imagine secret burial chambers that are closed off somewhere sacred and distant. Mostly because that's what the movies portray for mummies and such. But a tomb can be pretty much anything that houses the dead. It can be a coffin, carved stone, or an underlying sculpted mount.
