Tomb of Ramses VI

Scenes from The Book of the Earth decorate the burial chamber. Ramses's tomb was ransacked 20 years after completion, ca. 1116BC, but no one placed value on the wall paintings. The supreme irony is that the tomb raiders were so busy in here, they managed to overlook King Tutankhamen's tomb next door.
