'I visited and I did not like anything except the sarcophagus,' says one 1,000-year-old carving in Ancient Egypt

Scientists from the University of Warwick believed they may have uncovered one of the oldest versions of the online review website Tripadvisor, in a series of carvings on ancient Egyptian frescoes.

The marks have been studied by a Polish team of archaeologists working in the Valley of the Kings, where visitors etched their thoughts into artworks and on walls 1,000 years ago.
