New Website for Barcelona

In 1903 two tombs were found in the Valley of the Queens these elaborately decorated tombs were created for the New Kingdoms queen's, prince's and princess's.

However the tombs were full of coffins and mummies from the third intermediate period including a family of gardeners. How much of the original burials remained is a mystery to me but I would suspect little. Most of these coffins are now in Italy, six intact examples were retained in Egypt.
