Valley of the Kings in Egypt
The Valley of the Kings is a valley in Egypt where tombs were created for the pharaohs, the rulers of ancient Egypt. This valley is located on the banks of the Nile River, just opposite the city of Luxor (Thebes). Valley of the Kings in Egypt consists of 2 valleys: the West Valley and the East Valley, where many of the tombs are located.
The area was a center of Egyptological and archaeological research at the end of the 18th century, and to this day its tombs and tombs continue to attract researchers. The valley became popular thanks to the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb.
From the time of Thutmose the First, Egyptian rulers were buried in the desert west of Thebes, in a valley. Special units guarded the "city of the dead" as well as its treasures. Although there is evidence that the officials did not counteract the looting, they themselves organized these crimes. The treasures of the deceased pharaohs were used to fill the emaciated coffers.
In 2006, researchers found in the Valley of the Kings intact single-chamber tomb (later given the number KV63), which preserved five mummies in anthropomorphic wooden sarcophagi with burial masks. Twenty huge ceramic vessels with the imprints of the pharaoh's seal were also recovered.
This is the first burial to be found in the valley since the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922.
The expedition had been working on the excavation of a certain tomb (KV10) since 1990. Exploring the lower layers against the entrance to the tomb, they stumbled upon 4 workers' huts where they found tomb KV63. The Valley of the Kings in Egypt is full of mysteries and riddles unexplored until now.
