Nubit was walking around when she asked Shan a question about how to build tombs in the Valley of Kings.
Good question! You would need brick and wood to support the walls and an excavating tool like a wooden hammer or metal chisel.
Hello Shan I have a question, what are the tools to construct a tomb?
They walk for a bit until coming across a tomb to show an example of what one would look like to Nubit.
More great questions! After we stopped building pyramids for our kings we started the Valley of Kings to help guide the kings to the after life. The Valley of Kings was built for the Sons of Ramses II.
Wow! This is very interesting Shan. I have two questions. Why was the valley of kings constructed and for whom was it built for?
On the way back Nubit asked Shan another question.
Interesting Question Nubit. Draftsmen would start planning the layout of the tomb and then they would be critiqued on how it would lay out. Once they broke ground they would finish all the corners and paint with six colors.
What was the construction process like to build a tomb?
The next day Nubit wanted to ask Shan more questions.
Well, usually a person's prized possessions or anything else that could help them through the afterlife.
What would be inside of a tomb?
later that day Nubit was so happy to see Shan again she wanted to ask him more questions.
Well, There would be draftsmen and a head draftsmen, craftsmen, High priest, artists, and low-skilled workers.
What kind of workers were needed for this task?
When Shan was walking outside when Nubit ent out to speak to him.
Hi Shan, I had one more question how long would it take to complete a tomb like this?
It would take on average a few months to finish a tomb. It would take longer for bigger tombs.
