Egyptian Tombs Exposed


xplorer Howard Carter, funded and sponsored by English Lord Carnarvon, recently discovered an Egyptian burial site in the Valley of the Kings just outside Luxor, along the Nile river in eastern Egypt. This monumental discovery marks one of the greatest achievements ever made in archeology. Inside the Kings tomb, which was opened on November 26, lie countless gold artifacts, furniture, even a small boat. Among the artifacts that Carter and his team have just begun to unearth are chariots plated in gold and other precious stones, Egyptian clothes, and ancient weapons. These valuable artifacts will likely give today's modern scientific community very

useful information as to what life was like for kings in that era. If you fancy some of the artifacts that you’ve seen in the pictures furnished below, Lord Carnarvon holds open auctions for some of the less remarkable treasures for special guests with deep pockets. Two ships are bound for Egypt today, so with that extra dough take a vacation and at the riches for yourselves! The Normandie leaves port at 2:15 for Cairo, Egypt.
