Sacred Wonder of the World

Icons of antiquity, the Pyramids of Giza embody the mystery and majesty of Egypt's cultural heritage. The Great Pyramid, at right, tomb of King Khufu, towers some 450 feet (140 meters) over the desert. Built from 2.3 million blocks of stone, it is the oldest of the seven wonders of the ancient world and the only one that survives.

A funerary stela

A funerary stela from the entrance to Raïay's tomb is evidence of uncertain times. Raïay and his wife, seated at left, receive offerings in one scene, while inscriptions name several of Egypt's many traditional gods. But reliefs on the tomb walls include the name of just one god, Aten. Why the difference? Raïay probably had the walls decorated at a time when the radical Pharaoh Akhenaten worshiped Aten exclusively. Once Akhenaten died and people began to recoil from his extreme ideas, Raïay apparently tried to update his tomb by adding the stela. It was too little, too late. The Aten-only decoration had become a liability, and Raïay abandoned the tomb altogether. The question now is: Where was he buried?

New tomb discovered

Cut into a cliff, a new tomb discovered in the ancient Egyptian cemetery of Saqqara presents French archaeologist Alain Zivie with a mystery: the fate of the man who prepared this as his final resting place in about 1340 B.C.  Zivie searches the painted reliefs for clues in one of the rooms, where a modern jack shores up the fragile limestone of the ceiling. Deeper in the tomb, at the end of a downward sloping passage, lies the unfinished burial chamber, apparently never used.

Under the sands of Abusir

Eighty-two feet (25 meters) under the sands of Abusir, beneath the 24-ton (22-metric-ton) limestone lid of an outer sarcophagus, workers reveal the 2,500-year-old face of a priest named Iufaa sculpted on an inner sarcophagus of basalt.

Raïay and Hatiay

As clear as the day they were carved more than 3,300 years ago, hieroglyphs on a stone column record the title of the tomb owner: scribe (administrator) of the treasury of the temple of Aten in Akhetaten (the new capital) and Memphis (the old one). So, this man managed the sacred gold in two important seats of power. He had two names, Raïay and Hatiay. And he served one of the strangest, most enigmatic rulers in all of Egyptian history, the heretic Akhenaten.
