Follow a team of experts as they piece together a new theory that the KV63 chamber in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings is actually a funeral cache.
As archaeologists began to search for clues as to what KV63 was, tantalizing glimpses pointed to a connection with King Tut. In 2009 Dr Otto Schaden and his team returned to KV63 and they may have finally solved its mystery.
Follow the team as they piece together a new theory based on clues that this chamber was a funerary cache. Coffins with their names scrubbed out, bowls and other artefacts associated with Egyptian burials all eventually led to one conclusion – there was no mummy in KV63 because the place was never used as a tomb. Dr. Schaden believes that all the evidence, including exquisitely crafted pillows and a bed adorned with the heads of lions all point to the burial of the boy king himself.
Most importantly, this extraordinary new find gives a rare glimpse into a world we were never supposed to see – the results of preparations for the funeral rites of an Egyptian pharaoh.
