Archaeologists discover 4000 year old tomb in Eqypt

Archaeologists discover 4000 year old tomb in Eqypt

Some of the paintings displayed monkeys and other domestic animals dancing in front of an orchestra.

Egypt has announced a series of ancient discoveries in the past few months. The discovery, first of the year from Egypt, gives more insights into the ancient life of Hetpet whose name was first found on ancient antiques unearthed from the same site.

For his part, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mostafa Waziri said that the tomb of the priest Hatbet probably is not the main tomb of the priest, as it is made of mud bricks with a mortar layer.

The "Hetpet" tomb features "very distinguished" and well-preserved wall paintings depicting "Hetpet" standing in hunting and fishing scenes, or receiving offerings from her children.

"We know of course that she was a high official and that she had a strong link with the royal palace", Egyptian Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani said, describing Hetpet on Saturday.

One wall painting shows a monkey dancing in front of an orchestra. The tomb was discovered in October 2017 and that's when they started to dig deep to get as much information and history as possible.

He said: 'This is a very promising area. "We have removed between 250-300 cubic metres of layers of earth to find the tomb".

"What we see above the earth's surface in Egypt doesn't exceed 40 percent of what the core holds", he added.

A museum is now under construction in Giza and will feature many precious artefacts, including some belonging to the legendary king Tutankhamun.

The first phase of Grand Egyptian Museum is expected to be opened later this year while the grand opening is planned for 2022.

In January, Egypt placed the ancient statue of one of its most famous pharaohs, Ramses II in the museum.

The country hopes these findings will help draw more tourists.

Egyptian authorities are trying to revive the tourism industry, which is still reeling from the political turmoil and violence that followed the 2011 Arab Spring uprising against longtime dictator Hosni Mubarak.
