Excavation by any means
So using various advanced scientific techniques its been confirmed that it is indeed King Richard III’s remains under a car park in Leicester. And last year in Egypt we had various pyramids at Saqqara and even an entire city discovered by infra-red imaging.
However it hasn’t always been so high tech – did you know that the Valley of the Kings was initially 'discovered' by a horse stumbling into a shaft which led to the first royal tomb? And of course there is the donkey that fell into a hole which led to the excavation of the Valley of the Golden Mummies at the beautiful Bahariya Oasis.
See Bahariya and Saqqara plus the incredible pyramids at Jebel Barkal and Meroe in Sudan on our Cairo to Khartoum trip.
