Say what about Valley of the Presidents?

Hummm.... It got me thinking why the heck were mostly Pharaohs and government officials buried in The Valley of the Kings? Oh, well I mean this is a stupid idea to have a valley where kings were buried. Why doesn't the Untied Sates just have a Valley of the Presidents? Well the early Pharaohs were buried in large stone pyramids. How would you liked to be buried under a huge stone pyramid? Many of the large pyramids were built during a time period of ancient Egypt called the Old Kingdom. This Period took about 3,000 to 4,700 years ago. WOW that was long ago in the age before time. About 3,000 to 3,500 years ago a period called the New Kingdom began. Yeah finally a New kingdom! In that time Pharaohs wanted different tombs.Heck I would want a new life. Also in the New kingdom Pharaohs wanted to be buried in tombs cut into the sides of hills. I am dead and under a hill. Just great. It ended up being really hard to guard a large stone pyramid. Often expensive items that were buried with the kings things were stolen. Ahhh that would stink to be buried with some of your favorite things and someone stole those items. How rude! But if you were one of those few tombs that hadn't been robbed. Well that was only because, the were difficult to find or hard to enter. Lucky Ducks. : p
