A group of Italian archaeologists discovered the tomb of age more than three thousand years in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, Egypt. This was announced today by the Minister of State for Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim Adi Said.

According to him, the discovery was made during excavations at the place where there was no extant funerary temple of Amenhotep II — the seventh Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, who ruled in the years 1427-1401 BC
In the tomb were found the remains of wooden coffins and human bones, and canopic — special vessels used to store internal organs, decorated with images of the four sons of the ancient Egyptian god Horus.
