The Largest ‘Ancient Golden City’ Was Discovered in Egypt
The discovery of what is thought to be the largest ancient city uncovered in Egypt, which had been buried under sand for millennia, has been hailed by archaeologists as one of the most important finds since the excavation of Tutankhamun’s tomb. The researchers believed that it was the second most significant archaeological find that has been made since the tomb of Tutankhamun. In September of 2020, the crew began its excavations between the temples of Ramses III and Amenhotep III near Luxor. This location is approximately 500 kilometers south of Cairo, the capital city of Egypt.
The team said that it had discovered groups of tombs that it reached through “steps carved into the rock,” a construction that was comparable to those found in the Valley of the Kings. As a result of this discovery, the team expressed optimism that other key finds would be disclosed.
According to the statement, “The mission anticipates discovering undiscovered tombs that are packed with valuables.”
