Location of Tut's Tomb

Now, you're thinking, "where did they find king Tut's tomb? Well, they found it in the Valley of the Kings in a hillside. Now, pharaohs are buried with valuables and other crud they'd need in the afterlife, as well as amulets and other gems, so there usually was no theft attempt. NOT! People tried to rob the graves all the time! So their mummies were disturbed and couldn't live their afterlife in peace. Normally, the pharaohs (still alive at the time) would get like, eleventy-gillion-zillion-bagillion people to make a pyramid, which was basically their tomb, so the robbers couldn't find the tomb in the whole darned thing, and gave up. Oh yeah, when a pyramid was going to be built, the people who build them WANTED to lug around 3-ton blocks to build an oversized tomb. ANYWAY, king Tut was buried in the ground instead of in a pyramid. But after, what? 3 and a half thousand years, his tomb was undisturbed, I mean, half a dozen rooms totally jam-packed with gold and jewels!
