Only a couple of weeks ago Egyptian Antiquities authorities announced the discovery of an untouched tomb in Egypt – the first one since the discovery of Tutankamon’s tomb. And now they’ve anounced the discovery of a sun-temple in a Cairo suburb, right underneath a market in Aim Shams. Among the discoveries is a 4-5 ton statue of Ramses II.
Now, we all know that underneath the sands of Egypt lie all sorts of incredible temples, tombs and other monuments, but I can’t imagine a more wondrous feeling than actually discovering one. Right now, I’d love to be one of those archaeologists. I wonder if they need any help 😉
