    Interesting (I know, says who?) story I share.

    +++++++++

    EGYPT archaeologists made a stunning discovery in one of the ancient civilisations most well-known spots, in what a modern historian dubbed “the greatest find of all time”.

    The Valley of the King is located on the west bank of the Nile, opposite Luxor, and is known to contain 63 tombs, including Ramses II, Ramses III and Pharaoh Seti. The most famous of the bunch though, KV62, belonged to the young Pharaoh Tutankhamun and was not excavated until 1922 by Howard Carter, under Lord Carnarvon. The tomb was packed with fortunes and it took more than eight years to to empty due to the state of the tomb and Mr Carter's meticulous recording technique. .....

    I hope to take another trip to Egypt in the near future... it is overwhelming in the history and the different sites along the Nile.

    He may not have gotten to live forever, but he is making a pretty good second run.

    Not only was I impressed with how well preserved all the wood pieces were, it is astounding that that vid is as good as the day it was recorded.

    “Rockin by the Nile, the ladies liked his style”.....love it.
