ramsesII Archaeology Film Festival “Ramses II, The Great Journey”  Ramses the Second is one of the most famous pharaohs ever known. But what do we really know about him ? His life is well documented, but what about his existance afteward: his ”Great Journey.” An incredible story about a man who was believed to be immortal.

 After his death 3200 years ago, he was constantly removed from his tomb. It was only after several excavations directed by Rosselini and Champollion, Lepsius, and Carter, in 1872, that it was discovered that his mummy had disappeared. It was rediscovered at the end of the 19th century in Deir el Bahari, far from the place where Ramses died. After a police investigation which began in Cairo and ended at Luxor, two brothers revealed the hiding-place of the treasure they hoped to sell.

Thanks to the very latest scientific methods and to new technology we can now retrace the incredible story of the mummy, giving new insight into Ramses the Second’s extraordinarily long reign. “Ramses II, the Great Journey“ invites you to discover the famous tomb in the Kings Valley (KV7), as nobody has ever seen it before, and thanks to computer-generated images produce by Insight Digital (US) and the Louvre (Fr) we can offer a unique view of this original site.

All films for the the International Archaeology Film Festival will be shown at the Camp Verde Auditorium Theater, 370 Camp Lincoln Road, Camp Verde. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit the International Archaeology Film Festival.
