In Egypt, not far from the Luxor area, a group of archaeologists discovered a long-lost “Golden city”, which was hidden under the sands three thousand years ago. This was announced on Tuesday by the head of the expedition, Zahi Hawass.

According to information received from scientists, the city they found is one of the largest they could ever find in Egypt. Its founder was pharaoh Amenhotep III, who ruled the country from 1391 to 1353 BC. At that time, it was considered the largest city on the west bank of the Luxor River.

On the streets of the city, there are even houses, the height of the walls of which is about three meters. Archaeologists were able to date the settlement thanks to the inscriptions on the vessels for wine, as well as the Amenhotep’s III signet that was noticed on the bricks. Among the finds are equipment for storing food and tools. A cemetery and rock tombs were also found in the north of the city.

Excavations were started in September 2020. A few weeks after the start of excavations, archeologists found structures made of bricks. Later, the settlement itself was finally found.
