Ideas from a class on Egypt

Ideas from a class on Egypt:

Tomb 55 in the valley of the Kings.
Osirison: maybe made by Seti I, maybe a much older monument.

Amature archaeologists in the early 1900s: anyone could do it, for all sorts of reasons.

Tomb of Amunhotep II, found by a Frenchmanm Victor Loret, in 1898 (the guy after Gaston Maspero).
That guy had a nervious breakdown after finding the tomb.
