Exploration of 3,500-Year-Old Tomb of Ancient Monarch Unveils Remarkable Discoveries in Luxor
Egypt discovers new tomb from XVIII dynasty reported by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities
The Egyptian authorities reported this Saturday about the discovery of a new tomb west of the bank of the Nile River, in Luxor, in southern Egypt. According to the secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Mostafa Waziri, preliminary data inside the tomb indicate so far that it dates from the time of the Government of Tuthmosis of the Eighteenth Dynasty.
Mohsen Kamel, the director of the archaeological location of the western valleys said that the discovered tomb is in poor condition due to the rains that fell during ancient times.
The head of the mission for the English side, Perez Lezerland, noted that the found tomb may belong to one of the female queens or princesses during the Thutmose era. He considers this era of the XVIII dynasty as one of the most splendor in the pharaonic civilization.
The discovery of this tomb is the latest in a series of discoveries that Egypt has promoted in recent years in the hope of attracting more tourists.
