A 3,500-year-old tomb built for a goldsmith named Amenemhat and his wife Amenhotep, has been discovered at the ancient cemetery of Dra' Abu el-Naga in Luxor, the Egyptian antiquities ministry announced today (Sept. 9) at a press conference in Luxor.
The discovery was made in the southern city of Luxor.
The event was attended by Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Khaled al-Anany, Luxor's governor, a number of Egyptian officials, foreign diplomats as well as local and global archaeologists. The main shaft belonged to the tomb's owner and his wife and contained a collection of mummies, sarcophagi and funerary masks carved in wood along with a collection of ushabti figurines.
He said the works at the tombs are not finished yet, adding that he is expecting to find more objects inside the burial site. "This will lead to more discoveries in the future", Waziri said.
Among the things found inside was a statue of the goldsmith Amenemhat, sitting alongside his significant other.
"The entrance leads to a squared chamber where a niche is found at its end", he said. The antiquities ministry on Saturday said that the mummies of a woman and her two children were found inside it.
"In the courtyard, the mission stumbled upon a group of burial shafts which probably date to the Middle Kingdom", Waziri explained.
The grave of the Ancient Egyptian goldsmith and his wife were found in Luxor's Draa Abul Nagaa necropolis and is believed to be one of the most important finds in recent years. We discovered mummies, caskets, funerary brushes, funerary veils, some adornments, and statue.
Egyptian archaeologists frequently uncover remnants of the country's past, which was once a centre of ancient civilization.
He said a shaft in the tomb contained mummies belonging to ancient Egyptian people who lived during the 21st and 22nd dynasties.
