Quote:
"Archaeologists have discovered an 4,000-year-old tomb in Upper Egypt containing a sarcophagus inscribed with ancient funeral texts as well as ritual objects, Egypt's archaeological treasures minister said Monday. "It is the first time in many years that such a well-preserved tomb has been unearthed, " said Muhammad Ibrahim. The tomb dates from ancient Egypt's First Intermediate Period (2181-2055 BC) and is an unusual find, as very little archaeological evidence survives from this period. ..."
