Royal Egyptian Scribe's 3,000-Year-Old Tomb
on 15 February 2017
Dating back to the Ramesside period, around 1200 BCE, a tomb has been unearthed on the west bank of the Nile in Egypt. Japanese archaeologists, led by Waseda University Professor Jiro Kondo, made the discovery and researchers have already deduced that the tomb belonged to Khonsu, a royal scribe. Within, ornate hieroglyphics and ceiling drawings, many of which paid homage to Khonsu, were seen and documented. Professor Kondo believes the area holds many more undiscovered tombs much like the treasure trove he just revealed.
