The Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has done something impressive recently. The Ministry made virtual visits to the sites of Egyptian antiquities available to people while they were in their homes. The virtual tours included the Egyptian archaeological sites of all eras, whether Pharaonic, Greek, Roman, Islamic, Coptic, or Jewish monuments.

Among those virtual visits that received great attention not only in the Egyptian newspapers but also in the world’s newspapers, watch the tomb of Queen Meresankh III, dating back 5,000 years. English explorer George Andrew Reisner of Harvard had found the cemetery in 1927.

Meresankh III belongs to the fourth Egyptian family. She is the granddaughter of King Khufu, the owner of the Great Pyramid of Giza. On either side of the entrance. In the tomb, there are subtle inscriptions covered with earthy dyes 5,000 years old. Anglers depict waterfowl and a group of butlers. The queen appears wearing a white robe.

These virtual visits have drawn the attention of citizens towards getting to know their culture more and more, especially since those who take these tours feel as though they are inside these archaeological sites. We also know that the technology used also helps notify the visitor as if he feels the temperature of the archaeological site, especially like sites in the desert with high temperatures, such as the tomb of Meresankh III.
