Egypt Day 6, Valley of the Kings

Famed tomb of King Tutankhamun, discovered intact in 1922. The Valley of the Kings served as a royal cemetery to at least 62 pharaohs and lesser nobles. No doubt, many more wonders remain to be discovered.

In the tomb of Ramses II--the three headed serpent is not depicted in any other tombs. Note the extraordinary coloring
