Assassin’s Creed Origins: Earn Free Skill Points for Finding These Ancient Tombs

This page contains information on the Ancient Tombs that can be explored in Assassin’s Creed Origins.

Each tomb contains either an Ancient Tablet or an Ancient Mechanism. The reading an Ancient Tablet will earn Bayek an extra ability point, and the Ancient Mechanisms will offer insight into the world of the First Civilization.

Location: Giza

At the foot of the rocky hills in northwest Giza, find the entrance to this tomb nestled into a large cave mouth at the edge of the desert.


Use caution when entering this area, however – a crew of Lv 17-19 bandits have made camp in the upper levels of the tomb, with several patrols near the entrance and withing the chambers beyond.

Make your attack at night to catch half of the bandits sleeping – you should be able to take out the guards by the entrance individually if you’re patient. Use long grass and high ledges to your advantage here. Inside, you’ll find a few different paths into the rear chamber – you can eliminate most of the bandits here while they sleep if you attack under cover of darkness.

Pass by the large statue – you can find a piece of Silica and a carbon crystal by diving into the pool behind it and following the tunnel – then turn the corner to the right at the end of the room and head up the ramp.


At the top of the hill you’ll find some scaffolding and two lifts. The one directly ahead of you is weighted down by the large spool of rope – pick it up and carry it up the stairs to your left. Place the spool on the lift you find here, which will act as a counterweight to the first platform. Pile at least three nearby rope spools onto this platform to keep the first one weighted down. Go back to the top of the stairs and leap to the platform, which should now be able to bear your weight.


Follow this path into the next room, then climb down the statue of Sobek to reach the floor below. Here you can find the ancient tablet and some other loot.

Location: Siwa


Find this tomb in the rocky hills to the northeast of Siwa village. You will find a young boy named Fenuku outside the entrance, with a side quest marker for the mission Hideaway.


Head into the tomb and destroy the weakened wall covered in scarabs to your left, then pass through this new opening. You can move into the chamber ahead of you to speak to Chenzira, or just head up the ramp immediately on your right. At the top of the slope, turn left into the alcove and move into the next room.


Notice the tracks underneath the shelving – these indicate that the shelves can be moved. If you pull the one directly across from you (as you enter this room) out and aside, you can find several lootable items including a gear chest.


The one on the lefthand wall is blocked by several large pots – destroy them and move the shelf to the right to pass into the main chamber of the tomb.


Drop down into the chamber below and speak to Chenzira, then interact with the large Ancient Tablet to receive an ability point.


The Nomarch’s Tomb is located near the southern border of the Black Desert, by where it meets both Faiyum and the White Desert Oasis. On the easter edge of the rocky hills there, you’ll see some low-topped ruins with red paint. There’s some rigging set up over an opening nearby – drop down into the ruins to enter the tomb.

This tomb also leads to an Ancient Mechanism that can be activated for 5 silica.


This tomb is located in the Desheret Desert – it’s the only thing in the region. It can be approached from either end, but the “true” way into the strange man-made chasm is from the west – simply ride into the mouth of the crevasse.

This tomb can be reached by heading into a cave just south of the road leading east towards Saqqara / Giza, in the central part of the Isolated Desert. At the rear of the cave is a weakened wall – destroy it to enter the tomb.

The entrance to this tomb is at the base of the southwest corner of the pyramid that lies to the east of Krokodilopolis.

This tomb is located in the northeast corner of Saqqara Nome, in the large pyramid of steps. Approach the pyramid from the north and make your way down to the tunnel that’s been dug out beneath the base of its northern face.

The Tomb of Khafre can be found within the southern of the two large pyramids in Giza. Climb the wall to the opening on the north face of the pyramid, then light a torch and follow the passageway down into the tomb.

Head through the door on your left at the end of the hall where the first passage bottoms out, then follow this path into the next room. Interact with the moveable wall (covered in scarabs) on the lefthand side of the room to move into the next chamber.


Before running up the boat-shaped ramp in the center of the room, move around behind it and move the shelving unit along the track and into place below the end of the lever. This will prevent it from dipping downwards and allows you to make the jump to the ledge ahead of you.

After climbing up onto the ledge, follow the long hall ahead of you to find and interact with the Ancient Tablet at the end. Do a sweep around this room and surrounding corridor to avoid missing any valuables, then head down the hall opposite where you entered from and follow the passages until you return to the surface.


The Tomb of Khufu is located in the northern-most great pyramid. You can reach it via the opening on the north face of the pyramid – the same entrance to the pyramid used during the main quest The Hyena. To reach the tomb, follow the tunnel that leads down a passage to the left instead of squeezing through the crack into the path leading to the quest area.

You can activate the ancient mechanism that The Hyena was attempting to use. Retrace your steps through the crack and into the main chamber, then interact with the obelisk.


The left path will lead you to a stone passageway – take a right into the passage and follow it upwards. When you pass through the stone archway, take either ramp on the side of the hall to continue upwards – but be sure to collect the treasure through the hole underneath, first. Follow it to the top and crawl through the hole in the wall to continue.


After exiting the tunnel, collect the treasure around the room and pass through the movable wall to the right of where you entered from (again, look for the scarabs) to find yourself in a room full of treasure.


You need to get the rock face between the two statues to lower so you can climb it. On either side of the statues are two weakened walls with eagle sigils on them – destroy them with a melee attack to release a torrent of sand that will clear space for the door.


When both sigils are destroyed, climb up the lowered wall and cross through the small room to slide down the treasure pile and interact with the Ancient Tablet.


Crawl through the tunnel behind the tablet after collecting the rest of the treasure in the room. Climb across the wooden poles to reach the ledge on the other side of the chamber you come out into (you can climb down to collect some silica then climb back up). Follow the passages through the tomb to reach the exit on the south side of the pyramid.


The Tomb of Menkaure is located inside the smallest of the three Great Pyramids in Giza.

The Tomb of Smenkhkare is located at the southern tip of the Haureis Nome region. South of Hermopolis, at the base of a large hill, a set of ruins (marked by several large pillars) has a staircase in its center going down to a weakened wall. Destroy the wall to get inside the tomb – be warned that this entrance has a pride of lions that lives in/around the area.

The entrance to this tomb is located near the western edge of Uab Nome. Follow the road across the river from Krokodilopolis south to the rocky hills in the vertical center of Uab Nome. You’ll find a large hole in the wall of the cliffs here (marked by a slain wildebeest, a warning of the lions within). Make your way into the cave to locate the tomb.

More information will be added soon!


The Tomb of the Nomads is nestled into the cliffs of the north-west crag of the Isolated Desert, between the Black Desert and the Qattara Depression. Follow the road that runs along the Isolated Desert’s western border towards the Depression and you’ll find a small settlement. Built into the cliffs on the eastern side of the tiny village is the tomb’s entrance.
