A Greek report confirmed that the prominent archaeological discoveries in the city of Luxor show many secrets of ancient Egyptian history.

The Greek newspaper “Greek Reporter” said that archaeologists discovered a royal tomb dating back 3,500 years in the Luxor region in Egypt.

The archaeologists said: “Partial inscriptions and ceramic evidence indicate that this building was built during the reign of Thutmose III and Hatshepsut.”

A group of archaeologists from the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and a mission from the New Kingdom Research Foundation, associated with the MacDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at the University of Cambridge, were responsible for unearthing the tomb. October 2022.

When Thutmose III ascended the throne in 1479 BC, he was a young boy—he was probably only two years old—and his stepmother, Hatshepsut, served as regent and eventually co-ruler until her death in about 1458 BC.

During their reign together, a temple was built at Deir el-Bahri, and an Egyptian expedition to Punt, probably in present-day East Africa, was a great success.

Several people were buried in the newly discovered tomb, and the researchers revealed that “the architecture, as currently understood, indicates that the tomb was altered several times shortly after it was first built.”

The original occupant of the tomb remains a mystery to the team of archaeologists. The surviving decoration of the tomb and the size of the few accessible rooms currently indicate a royal burial of some importance and this is likely, given the location near the Valley of the Kings, the burial of a great royal wife and several sons of King Thutmose.

There is likely to be more than one group of human bones, according to experts, however, water damage from previous floods has severely damaged the structure of the tomb.

Experts said that repeated flooding completely filled the main axis of the tomb with hard concrete debris and caused the ceilings of the tomb to weaken and collapse.

The components of the tomb are still being examined and studied, and it will take several seasons to disinfect the rooms and make the tomb safe.”

The report said that the Luxor region in Egypt is rich in archaeological discoveries, with many notable discoveries from ancient Egyptian history.

Among the most important discoveries in the region is the Valley of the Kings, where many tombs belonging to pharaohs and nobles of the New Kingdom era were discovered.
