The Valley of Kings in my OWN words and some cool facts...

The Valley of Kings.Okay so the Valley of Kings is a place where a bunch of dead boring people were buried? WRONG! The Valley of Kings is actually interesting. Early Pharaohs were buried in large stone pyramids.Most Pharaohs were men, but a few woman ruled Ancient Egypt too! In the 18th dynasty, Queen Hatsheput became a pharaoh. She dressed in men's clothing to perhaps play the pharaohs role better. Many of the large pyramids were built during a time period of of ancient Egypt, called the Old Kingdom. This period took place around 3700-4700 years ago. I know what your thinking dang! that was a while ago. Each tomb has features that make it valuable to scientists. King Tuts tomb was one of the most important tombs ever found. Scientists found more treasures than there are in any other tomb in the valley. Almost all Pharaohs were buried in the Valley of Kings. Did you know the Valley of Kings has one main road. Also the Arabic name for The Valley of Kings is Wadi Biban al Moluk. SO now you see how important the Valley of Kings really is.
