It only took 80 years, but this ancient Egyptian tomb is finally open to the public. Located in the Saqqara necropolis, a burial ground south of Cairo, this historic site is the final resting place of a high-ranking Egyptian official called Mehu, his son Mery Re Ankh, and his grandson Hetep Kha II.
The tomb and its ornate, vibrant wall paintings and hieroglyphs depict scenes of hunting, fishing, harvesting, cooking, and dancing, shedding light on how Egyptians lived nearly a thousand years before the pyramids were built. One particular painting even shows two crocodiles getting married. The tomb is thought to be one of the most beautiful in the Saqqara necropolis.
