Virtual tours of Egyptian tombs

Post by newcastle »

I’ve been using the current excess of time on my hands to explore some of the virtual sites available to explore Egyptian tombs.

I came across this:


In the tomb of the sixth Dynasty Vizier Mehu in the Unas Pyramid Cemetery in Saqqara Necropolis, unearthed in 1939 by an Egyptian mission led by Egyptologist Zaki Saad.

They also do tombs in the Theban necropolis....e,g. Menna

And in the Valley of the Kings....e.g. Ramesses VI

You can find some of the other Egyptian heritage sites by looking at this Smithsonian site and clicking on the relevant link
