Valley of the Kings : one of the largest areas of archaeological excavations
Most of the tombs were cut into the limestone following a similar pattern:

three corridors, an antechamber and a sunken sarcophagus chamber. These catacombs were harder to rob and were more easily concealed. The switch to burying the pharaohs within the valley instead of pyramids, was intended to safeguard against tomb robbers.

The area of the Valley of the Kings is one of the largest areas of archaeological excavations related to the science of Egyptology over the last two centuries, after it was just a tourist attraction in ancient times (especially in the Roman era), [28] and was also a witness to the transformation of the long methodology of studying the history of Egypt Which began from the theft of antiquities and the looting of graves until it reached the scientific explorations that have revealed the whole Funeral City of the whole, and despite all these explorations, but more than eleven graves were not fully documented after knowing all the details about them and their owners .
