Archaeologists have discovered the bodies of several New Kingdom royals which had evidently been rescued from tomb-robbers in antiquity and reburied. Among those preserved are Ramses II and his father Seti I, so it is possible to "look on the face of Ramses" today, if not Agamemnon's. And even when a king's body has been lost, often items buried with him and marked as such have turned up, usually on the black market, so we know the pharaoh was at least buried somewhere. To the contrary, no relic from Akhenaten's burial has ever come to light.
