4,000-year-old tomb uncovered in Egypt

An ancient untouched tomb has been found in the Deir al-Barsha necropolis in Egypt.

“It is the first time in many years that such a well-preserved tomb has been unearthed, ” said Muhammad Ibrahim.

The tomb dates from ancient Egypt’s First Intermediate period (2181-2055 BC) and is an unusual find, as very little archaeological evidence survives from this period.

Ritual objects made from alabaster copper, terracotta and other materials were found in the tomb, located in the Deir al-Barsha archaeological area, in al-Minya province, 245 kilometres south of Cairo.
