Ancient tomb in Upper Egypt discovered

A team of archaeologists discovered a 4,000-year-old tomb from Upper Egypt, which contained a sarcophagus with inscriptions of ancient funeral texts, as well as various ritual objects, explained the Minister of Archeology of Egypt.

It is the first time in many years that a very well preserved tomb has been discovered", said Muhammad Ibrahim.

The tomb dates from the First Intermediate Period of Ancient Egypt (2181 - 2055 BC) and is an unusual find as very little archaeological evidence from this period has survived.

Ritual objects made of copper, alabaster, terracotta and other materials, have been found in the tomb located in the Deir al-Barsha archaeological site, in al-Minya province, 245 kilometers south of Cairo.


After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news about archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
