King Tut’s Tomb Chambers

The entrance passage consists of limestone with steps that descend deep into The Valley of the Kings. Once down the pathway a plaster wall is present. Embedded into the plaster wall is a stamp of a jackal and nine slaves, this representing Tutankhamun’s royalty. Farther into the tomb a second plaster door is stamped with many priest’s seals and King Tut’s royal seal. On this doorway in the top left hand corner the plaster wall shows signs of being entered.
