Radar survey of Egypt’s Valley of the Kings opens up new possibilities for lost tomb finds

Valley of the Kings GPR Survey

A radar survey of Egypt’s Valley of the Kings hopes to find some of the missing tombs of Egyptian Queens and Pharaohs that have so far eluded archaeologists. Distinguishing natural faults and other geologic features from potential tombs is one challenge. The article also describes how some other interesting discoveries have been made, including an ancient flood control system that prevented the tombs from being flooded, but rapidly fell into disrepair.
