Ninety-five years after its 1922 discovery in the Valley of the Kings, Egypt's ancient royal cemetery, the tomb of the young pharaoh, Tutankhamun, is still considered by many to be the greatest archaeological discovery of all time. Despite its fame, many intriguing questions remain about the tomb and its occupant.

The PLU Valley of the Kings Project has documented several smaller, "lost" tombs and controversial mummies found in the Valley of the Kings, not far from Tut's tomb. Recently, the project focused on tombs which when first encountered in 1906, were found to contain the mummies of animals, including monkeys and a dog.
