THE GATEWAY


The ancient Egyptians left huge temples, monuments and pyramids for us to find above the ground. But they also spent an unprecedented amount of time underground creating elaborate tombs.

Most scholars thought that all pharaohs’ tombs had been found in the Valley of the Kings. Until 1922 when Howard Carter uncovered the resting place of an obscure and unknown king called Tutankhamun.

So are there any more undiscovered tombs still out there? The answer yes. The tomb of the late Ramesside King, Ramesses VIII is still yet to be found. Many people think it may be found somewhere within the Valley of the Kings.

But not only that, ancient Egyptians of all social class would have had their own tombs built for themselves - some simple, some luxurious. The chances are, there are still many undiscovered tombs that are untouched and unbreached.
