Incredible archaeological finds already surround the archaeologists who are toiling away in the Valley of the Kings in October 2019. As the team scour their selected dig site, though, one of the workers notices something strange. The sand seems to have shifted, in fact – just enough to reveal what looks to be a face. And when the archaeologists investigate further, they come across yet another truly astonishing discovery that may yet change what we know about Ancient Egypt.

But then the Valley of the Kings has long rewarded researchers with historical treasure. The rocky expanse on the west bank of the Nile houses 63 tombs, for example, with one of these even having housed the illustrious Tutankhamun. The boy king – who is also known colloquially as King Tut – is of course one of ancient Egypt’s most famous pharaohs.
