"Swedish mission discovered 12 New Kingdom tombs in Upper Egypt" (Luxor Times, 11.01.2017)

Quote:
"The Swedish mission from Lund University at Gebelel Silsila, south of Luxor, in Upper Egypt led by Dr. Maria Nilsson and John Ward, discovered 12 rock cut tombs from the reign of the New Kingdom kings Thutmose III and Amenhotep II.


Also Three crypts cut into the rock, two niches possibly used for offering, one tomb containing
multiple animal burials, and three individual infant burials, along with other associated material.


Dr. Mahmoud Afifi, head of ancient Egyptian antiquities department, describes such discovery as "important" because it 
continues to change the perception of history in the ancient quarried landscape of Al-Silsila
. ..."

Greetings, Lutz.

It seems cool to me that there are so many new discoveries. It seems like everywhere there are new things to be found. There is a lot of things yet to be discovered.

The fossils sound cool, I wonder when they found them, and why they had them.
