The ruins of a 3,000-year-old city have been found in Egypt

Archaeologists have discovered in Egypt the ruins of a city dating back about 3,000 years. The city located near Luxor was discovered Advertise By the well-known Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass, and the American Egyptologist Betsy Brian, a professor at Johns Hopkins University and a member of the expedition, defined it as “the second most important archaeological discovery since the tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered.” The city is allegedly founded by Pharaoh Amenhotep III, who ruled Egypt from 1391 to 1352 BC

Excavations began in September 2020, on the West Bank near the Valley of the Kings, the area near Luxor that the ancient Egyptians used for nearly five centuries to bury their rulers. Hawass said that after a few weeks of excavation, many rows of bricks appeared, which immediately made archaeologists suspect the existence of an underground city. “We discovered a large city site in good condition, with almost complete walls and rooms full of everyday things,” Hawass said.
