The New Kingdom


The New KingdomBy: Esperanza Avila




There were many kinds of artifacts that have been found from the New Kingdom which was a vase painted in blue. This artifact was found in the Valley of the Kings where King Tut was burried. King Tut's tomb was also found in Valley of the Kings in 1922. They found the room where king tut was found and they also found many hyroglifics.

The pharohs I chose from the New Kingdom is King Tut and Rameses the Great. First I will start with King Tut. King Tut's nicknmae was "Boy King" because he became king when he was only 9 years old. He died at the age of 18. He was buried inside a golden coffin and was placed in a temple called Valley of the Kings. He was surrounded with 5000 priceless tresures. There was a golden throne, crowns, pottery, and some treasure chests. The second character I chose from the New Kingdom is Rameses the Great. While his father was pharoh him and his older brother became prince. After Rameses dad and brother had died, he became king and he started to build many buildings like ramesseum, abu simbel, and pi- ramesses.

There is a statue called the great sphinx. The sphinx is one of the largest stone statue in the world. The face of the sphinx is badly damaged including the nose. The sphinx has the body of a lion and the head of a human and it is made of limestone. There is also a temple called abu simbel. This temple was built from rameses the great. There are 4 huge statues on the temple that are about 66 feet tall.

The afterlife for Egyptians was very important to them. This was called mummification. The first step is that they cover the body with natron salt or they could be left out in the sun. Then there iternal organs gets removed from the body into small vases and gets wrapped in linen. The mummification was very expensive. Only the pharoh, royal families, and very wealthy individuals can aford mummifcation.
