The greatest treasures will not be gold or gem stones but any records or scrolls buried with them.
I personally hope they will find something that will prove once and for all that the ancients were a lot more advanced than we give them credit for

Sunday Times want me to subcribe first..booo
These priest kings lived in very troubled times Ramesis XI had to share power with Harihor , Piankh and Semedes ,
a certain near userper Pinehesy the viceroy of Nubia incharge of the gold mines and Medjay forces almost took it all and was driven south however
the mines were lost forever to the Nubians who began to reassert their independence and within a couple of generations would claim all of Kemet
,interesting connection to the personal name of Piankh with that of Piankhi the Kushte who came control all of Kmt,might be just a coincidence but he
is described also as the king's son of Kush and given the intermingling of high status folks from both sides of the boarder I would not be
surprised,after all the later 25th dynasty claimed legitimacy and was not looked upon as foreigners but as restores of Maat.
So, it was all about gold to cling on to power - even back then? Today I guess oil has replaced gold when it comes to clinging on to power - how
little we have changed in many ways...
Interesting connection, but for all we know Piankh was a common name like William today. Does the dates match up with Piankh's?

Yeah just imagine if Alaska and Texas declared independence.
About the names Piankh and Piankhi there are no provable links just guess work on my part but during that era a lot of effort was made to unite the
Nile so alot of families on both sides were intermarrying especially the upper classes many of the leading figures in kmt proper were of Nahasi
extraction if not birth like Pianahasi
and Sermont, who was called an Ordinary Medjay (Nubian) "Chief of the Medjay a man who rose from the
ranks of humble beginnings,the later Piankhi was about two generations later,by that time the Libyans to the West exerted their influence and were so
hard on the populous that the leading families of the eternal capital city Thebes or Waset called on the southerners to restore order in "my
this would include old family ties,this would lend legitimacy it also didn't hurt that apart from the gold the southerners had control
of the birth place of Amun
Jebel Barkal the birthplace of Amun or Nesut-Tawy (“Thrones of the Two Lands.”)
The corrupt nature and seeming incompetence also lost them their Asian domain.
