The Tombs of the Kings is a large necropolis Mick visited on his trip to Cyprus as part of his Corn Flake mission.

There are many underground chambers carved out of solid rock which are believed to be tombs from the 4th century BC, where, despite its name, Paphitic aristocrats and high officials were buried, not kings.

Looks like this was used for something interesting

There are columns and frescoes in parts of the complex but more interesting to us are the shapes carved into the rock, which like many sites we have seen, suggest a more mechanical use. If alternative theories are correct and there once existed a global civilisation with advanced technology then this site certainly needs to be investigated further as the amount of rock removed here is very impressive.
