Tomb of royal scribe discovered in Egypt

The tomb of an ancient royal scribe has been unearthed in Egypt.

Wednesday’s statement says the intricately decorated tomb and coffin of Ken-Amun, who was the overseer of the royal records during the 19th Dynasty (1315-1201 B.C.) was found near Ismailia, 75 miles (120 kilometers) east of Cairo.

Zahi Hawass says 35 other Roman-era graves also were uncovered on top of the scribe’s tomb.

The antiquities czar says the tomb’s discovery will help provide information about the history of the Delta and the relationship between the area and Egypt’s eastern border.
