Gebel el Silsila Gebel el Silsila

New Archaeological Treasure Found in Egypt

The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced that a 3,400-year-old necropolis has been discovered at a quarry site at Gebel el Silsila, north of Aswan. So far, the archaeologist's team has documented over 40 tombs,

including a small shrine on the banks of the Nile, many of which are in bad condition as they have suffered from heavy erosion and extreme decay due to the rising water and its high salt contents, revealed Maria Nilsson, director, Gebel el Silsila Survey Project.
