Egypt archaeologists unearth goldsmith's tomb near Luxor

Egypt archaeologists unearth goldsmith's tomb near LuxorEgyptian archaeologists have discovered a tomb of a prominent goldsmith who lived more than 3,000 years ago, unearthing statues, mummies and jewellery in the latest major find near the Nile city of Luxor. Egypt’s Minister of Antiquities Khaled Al-Anani said on Saturday the tomb dated back to Egypt’s 18th dynasty New Kingdom era — around 15th century B.C. “The work did not finish yet and we’re continuing and working to find more objects and more tombs,” he told Reuters at the site. Earlier this year, authorities announced they had discovered another New Kingdom tomb in Luxor belonging to a judge, and Swedish archaeologists discovered 12 ancient cemeteries near the southern city of Aswan that date back almost 3,500 years.
