A civilisation that lived for over 3000 years, Ancient Egypt was one of the most powerful empires to have ever existed. In a society rich in custom and tradition, the emergence of modern technology and profound research techniques has allowed us to gather considerable insight into the many monuments, objects, and artifacts that were so typical of Egyptian Culture. As a result, we have uncovered a whole wealth of information surrounding the architecture and distinct religious traditions shared by the Ancient Civilisation.
Important members of Egyptian Society were none other than the Royals or Pharaohs, rulers of the empire that were admired and glorified by all. These important figures were buried in giant pyramids or secret tombs and were accompanied by precious artefacts and ornaments to guide them through the afterlife.
A discovery that sparked significant interest in Ancient Egypt, and a consequential deeper focus on archaeological efforts was the iconic revelation of King Tutankhamun’s tomb by Howard Carter in 1922. The famous pharaoh was buried within The Valley of The King’s, joining many of his ancestors who had been entombed there for decades and centuries prior.
