The 3,000-year-old tomb of the royal scribe Userhat has been discovered in Luxor.

“While cleaning the area above the ‘rump’ to the forecourt, we found a hole,” Kondo told Seeker. After entering the hole, he and his team were stunned by what they found: a previously unknown separate chamber.

“The tomb is beautifully decorated and probably dates to the Ramesside period,” he said, referring to the span from 1292 to 1069 B.C. “The owner of the tomb is Khonsu, who has the title of ‘the royal scribe.'” The ancient Egyptian’s name is clearly written in hieroglyphics in the tomb.
