Egypt: Lost Tomb of the Sons of Ramesses II

Egypt: Lost Tomb of the Sons of Ramesses II

"Highly Recommended. This program reports on the excavation of KV5, a tomb thought to be constructed by Ramesses II as a burial place for his first 12 sons. Using diaries, 19th-century maps, photography, common sense, and a lot of old-fashioned digging, a team led by Kent Weeks, a professor of Egyptology at American University in Cairo, uncovered the tomb. It is an exciting find because of the likelihood that the tomb has not been plundered by grave robbers and will present complete, undisturbed burial areas." -VRG Review
This classic film features the renowned American Egyptologist Dr. Kent Weeks and documents the re-discovery of the forgotten tomb, KV5, in the Valley of the Kings. Here we learn that the once overlooked tomb is not only one of the largest found in Egypt, but also it is unique in plan and purpose. From the wall reliefs and objects found on the floors, archaeologists have discovered that KV 5 was the burial place of the sons of Ramesses II. Produced by Jyl Baldwin and Gaston Chan. 04/08DE IJSCA 15 min.
