Wonderful Things : Ancient Egypt’s royal Treasures of Tanis

In the Ancient Egyptian city of Tanis in the Nile Delta, an entire complex of royal tombs was discovered during the 1939-1940 excavation season by the French Egyptologist Pierre Montet – three were still intact! The treasures uncovered there are one of the greatest, and most beautiful, archaeological discoveries of all time, rivalling even those of Tutankhamun.
