The Tomb of the The Chihuahua Pharaohs We found this site invaluable in preparing our web
projects. In addition to excellent clip art and fascinating information about mummification and
archeology, there is an list of links to relevant Egyptian sites for both students and teachers.
Egypt, Land of the Pharaohs. The name inspires awe and wonder. Archaeologists have studied the remains of Egyptian civilzation for more than a century. They have uncovered many wonderful treasures and artifacts that have given us a glmpse of the lives of the ancient Egyptians. Many questions are yet to be answered. These we leave up to you, the archaeologists of the future.

When we think archaeology, often times the first thing to pop into our minds is ancient Egypt. Take a look at Egyptian Royal Tombs of the New Kingdom. This site, optimized for fast loading, has lots of diagrams of tombs that have been excavated and mapped. See what's inside those
pyramids, what Tutankhamen's burial place looked like, and more. Rated G
