Egyptian archaeologists announced that a 4400-year-old tomb has been discovered.


A 4400-year-old tomb has been discovered in Saqqara Egypt believed to have belonged to a Priest.

The tomb in Saqqara which was the capital of ancient Egypt for over 200 years, has already unveiled a lot of secrets and more can be expected in the following months as excavations will continue. According to Mostafa Waziri who is the secretary general of the supreme council of antiquities.

The tomb was untouched until the last layer of rubble was removed last Thursday. Inside the tomb the Archaeologist found five shafts.

One of the shafts was opened and turned out to be empty but the other ones still need to be excavated in the next few days.

According to Mostafa Waziri one of the shafts could possibly lead to a coffin or a sarcophagus.

The tomb was described as very well preserved. You can see decorations of a priest with his mother, and other relatives. The decorations seem to even have all colours intact even though the tomb is over 4000 years old.
