rockcut

Rock-cut tombs were constructed by tunneling into the hilly landscape in areas such as the Egyptian capital city of Thebes , pictured above. They were often elaborate structures with false corridors and blocked doors to confuse thieves. The tomb of King Tut was one of the few rock-cut tombs to escape discovery by robbers.
