The Egyptian archaeology is reach in activities which is a normal thing if we consider that Egypt is a country full of treasures. For example, a team of Egyptian and Spanish archeologists identified in Luxor a funerary room of an artisans` chief of an Egyptian dynasty from the XV century BC, a discovery which shows the features of the funerary art of that time. The found room belonged to a chief of the artisans responsible with the decoration of the temples and tombs from the period of queen Hatshepsut who ruled between 1580 BC and 1314 BC and allowed to the archeologists to understand better the manner in which these rooms were built. The funerary room has a length of 34 meters, dating from the 1502-1482 BC period. The archeologists discovered on the walls religious inscriptions characteristic to the epoch and explications referring to the architecture of the funerary constructions of that period. In a tomb from vicinity were discovered some plaquette for the society games, clay crocks, and a wood trunks. The researches regarding this funerary room are still in the attention of the Egyptian archeology. The pyramid of Keops was explored by the archeologists but it still remains an important subject for the Egyptian Egyptology since inside the pyramid are other rooms and galleries that still have not been localized. Many of the joining is covered by the antique constructers with mortar and gypsum. And that is why no archeologist could see that is about a system of makeup unique in the history of the Egyptian archaeology. The assembly of the discoveries allowed the localization of the stones placed to close the access to the secret galleries or rooms. The archeologists discovered on a stone a hieroglyph that has the role of showing the stone` s destination.
