The Valley Of The Kings, a depression in Egypt, nearly five hundred years from the sixteenth to eleventh century BC, has tombs made for the kings and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom.
Situated on the west bank of the Nile, opposite to the Thebes (modern Luxor), within the heart of the Theban Necropolis, it has two valleys. One of the valleys, the East Valley is where the majority of the royal tombs are situated, and other is the West Valley. The region has been a centre of intensive archaeological and egyptological exploration since the end of the eighteenth century, and its tombs and burials continue to spur research and interest.
Famous for the discovery of Tutankhamun remains and the rumoured Pharaohs’ curse, the place is the most remarkable archaeological site in the world. The valley became a World Heritage Site in the year of 1979, along with the rest of the Theban Necropolis. Beginning with Thutmose I and ending at Ramesses X or XI, the valley was used for burials from 1539 BC to 1075 BC, and contains around sixty tombs,
