Valley of the Kings, Egypt - Valley


As soon as you arrive in the Valley of Kings inquisitiveness captivates you. This place was solely built for politics and religions purposes but by the passing time Thutmose I used it as a regal necropolis.  The chief employ of this primordial attraction is for burials dating from 1539 BC to 1075 BC. There are at least 63 crypts found within. Thutmose I was said to be the first to be cremated here; though some studies says that Amenhotep I is the first one. The last noble that was cremated here was Ramesses X or XI. Lately there were non-Royal burials that were still made in the place. As the years passed, the number burials receded in the valley. During the 20th and 21st Dynasty, in an attempt to keep the mummies in shape, their crypts were unwrapped and they were buried yet again in caches.
