Throughout ancient Egyptian history, hundreds of pharaohs ruled over Egypt’s golden sands. Tombs of the Egyptian Pharaohs have long captivated not only archeologists but the public in general. It is because Egyptian history has that mysterious touch to it. Many people are drawn to Egyptian history because, at the end of the day, it has much to offer. As I have written previously, Egypt is more than just its pyramids and temples. Egypt has a lot to offer. From mummies to curses to lost treasures and forbidden places, Egypt has it all.
Excavations in Egypt have revealed a wealth of information about ancient Egypt, its rulers, and its people. One of the most fascinating discoveries in the history of Egyptology is, without a reason of doubt, the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun. However, it is believed that, even though the tomb of King Tut was exceptionally well preserved, there is evidence of light looting in the past.
Finding ancient Egyptian tombs that were left intact is a rarity. However, such discoveries have been made in the past. Some two decades after Carter had discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun, archeologists made an incredible find at the royal Necropolis of Tanis. Find out more about what they came across in this video.
