Door to Afterlife Discovered in Luxor, Egypt

DolceTracker| Archeologists in Luxor, Egypt have discovered a 3,500-year-old, red granite door to the afterlife, initially sealed in the tomb of royal adviser User and his wife Toy. During his life User was an important adviser to Queen Hatshepsut.

Queen Hatshepsut is generally regarded as among the most successful of ancient Eghpt’s pharaohs. Egypt was at peace for most of her 22-year reign, although the ruler is described as experienced and expert in warfare. Instituting peace for most of her reign allowed Queen Hatshepsut to build trade networks that fed government coffers and funded the construction of monuments and buildings that tourists still flock to see. via The Hindu
