A Virtual Trip to Ancient Egyptian Tombs
Egypt is a beautiful country filled with history. While there has been conflict over the years, the beauty of the pyramids, tombs and structures built have been preserved at a high level. Being able to not only read about history, but also see it is a privilege that we should cherish.
There are times in virtual tours where you wonder what you should be looking at, but during this tour, there is always something to look at. A straight shot down to his tomb, but nicely decorated the whole way lets you see how much Egyptians revered the afterlife.
Queen Meresankh's tomb was happened upon with surprise while clearing the debris around the tomb. The entrance is below ground level, but an astonishingly beautiful tomb that differs from other tombs. A video guide to the tomb can be viewed by clicking this link.
If you're looking for a full overview of the various monuments, tombs and pyramids in Egypt, look no further. With an extremely in-depth website, you can explore information and find the exact location of each! Scroll along on the front page, or click the three bar button at the top left of the webpage to find more information on Egypt.
