Lost Pyramid Hidden in Plain Sight at the Valley of the Kings

The last royal pyramid to be built in Egypt was that of Ahmose I, the founder of the New Kingdom, first king of the famous and powerful 18th Dynasty.

But recently, in my research, I came across something I had never heard of before. It’s known as the Abydos Stela of Tuthmose I. It was found in excavations at the Great Temple of Osiris in the Kom el Sultan region of Abydos.

It is a memorial stone made from sandstone, recording the king’s works in the temple but it mentions something very curious, that Thutmose I, the 3rd king of the famous 18th Dynasty of New Kingdom Egypt, had a pyramid.

But where could it be? Has it long been destroyed and removed from the landscape? Did it even exist? Or could it be hiding in plain sight?

Watch this video as we delve into the mystery and at the end of this video, I offer my own solution as to exactly where the Pyramid of Thutmose I is.
