I don’t understand it… the markings here make no sense. I haven’t made out much so far, just this – ‘The King, who was at our head. Let the imperishable star live forever in the sky. Escape not, the day of death. The steps of darkness are revealed at last.’

A Pharaoh, that much is clear. But his name is not translatable, the symbol here is not any hieroglyph I’ve ever seen before. The dates here, describing the time of his rule… they’re complete gibberish.

And since this tomb has clearly been sealed for thousands of years, I must ask the most puzzling question of all… why is the sarcophagus empty?
