Tomb from 15th Century BC Found in Egypt

LUXOR, Egypt An Egyptian archaeological team announced on Saturday the discovery of a tomb of a royal goldsmith that dates back to the 15th century BC and which was dedicated to the ancient Egyptian god Amun.

The goldsmith lived during the 18th-dynasty New Kingdom era and has been identified as Amenemhat.

In a press conference at the site of the discovery in this Nile city, located 700 kilometers (400 miles) south of Cairo, Egyptian Antiquities Minister Khaled Al-Anani said the mummies of a woman and her two children also were found inside the tomb.

The items found inside included a statue depicting Amenemhat sitting beside his wife and with one of their sons between their legs.

Authorities hailed the importance of the discovery, saying it was the second made by a mission made up entirely of Egyptian archaeologists.
