Valley of the Kings

Valley of the Kings is one of those mystical places that still exist in the world today. An area within Egypt it contains many of the Tombs of the past Kings and Queens. Tutankhamun, Ramses, Seti etc, the remains all are scattered across the vast desert land.

Alot of these were only actually discovered relatively recently in history, with the age of archeologists and adventurers (Indian Jones) the Tombs of those famous historic figures can now be unwrapped and we can learn about ancient Egypt and their people. 

Many of the Tombs are deep down in the ground, through various tunnels and traps. This had meant that a lot of the hidden chambers were kept in excellent condition and far away from the looters hands! The photo above you can see how well preserved the chamber is with the hieroglyphics around the walls.
