Saturday, November 4.
First steps of tomb found.

stepsOn the morning of November 4th, 1922, a waterboy hit a strange rock with his heel as he tried to make a place to set jars of water for the thirsty workers. The sand around the rock was cleared revealing that the rock was infact a step.

Everyone was so excited as they knew that most tombs in the valley had stairways cutting into the rock. They began to clear the area of more sand and gradually uncovered another step, then another, and another until a flight of steps was cleared.

Where did the steps lead to?
