Key Ancient Egyptian Tomb Found

3 posts in this topic

Egyptologists may have identified the oldest tomb in the Valley of the Kings, solving the long-standing mystery over the burial place of pharaoh Amenhotep I.

A strong contender as founder of ancient Egypt's most famous necropolis, Amenhotep I (1525-1504 B.C.) is known as the warrior pharaoh for his military exploits. Recovered in 1881 in a mass grave of royal bodies at Deir el-Bahari, his mummy is now kept at Cairo's Egyptian Museum.
