Giza and the pyramids 'must be preserved for future generations'
This is the view of Dr Zahi Hawass, the general secretary of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), who shared his opinions in a column for Arabic news source Asharq Alawsat.
He underlined how ancient Egyptians left evidence of their lives through hieroglyphics and paintings, meaning that visitors to the tombs thousands of years later can better understand their legacy.
"The difference between ancient Egyptians and other societies of that era was that the ancient Egyptians were more optimistic about death. The pharaohs knew life and so they wrote for themselves immortality," Dr Hawass explained.
Along with his role at the SCA, Dr Hawass also leads expeditions at Luxor and the Valley of the Kings.
Earlier this month, his team discovered two new tombs in the Saqqara necropolis, which he described as a significant breakthrough.
