Another Archaeological Gem Discovered in Egypt

Adding to this year’s rich portfolio of Egyptian archaeological discoveries, Egypt Tourism reported new burial chamber found within the Draa El-Naga necropolis, near the Valley of the Kings.


Eight metres beneath the surface, the uncovered location features skeletons, funerary artefacts, four wooden sarcophagi, jewellery and funerary cones belonging to a goldsmith named Amenemhat from around 1500 BC.

The tomb also contains passages to other tombs with contents dating back as far as 2000 BC.

Furthermore, 40 of the 50 funerary cones discovered are believed to belong to another nobleman said to have been buried within close proximity.
