Tomb of Ramesses I Tomb of Ramesses I

Ramesses I is the founder of the 19th dynasty. He ruled for two years only and this is why his tomb is simple as it was hastily finished.

A stairway and a sloping corridor lead to another sloping corridor and finally to the burial chamber which is the only place decorated. This has two smaller rooms on its sides and a deep nicheWhat does it mean? on the back wall.
The granite sarcophagusWhat does it mean? lies open on the chamber ground. The chamber and the niche have paintings extracted from the Book of Gates. The decorations also show the king with a number of deities.
