Why is my bread so dense?

I've recently started baking and almost every loaf of bread I've made has been heavy and dense.

I'm guessing it's one of three things:

1> Over kneading
2> Under kneading
3> Failure to properly rise

I've followed several different recipes, (say 5 or 6) with consistently poor results. The bread tastes fine, it's just a bit ... "dense".
