4,000-year-old Pharaonic funerary garden unearthed in Egypt
An almost 4,000-year-old Pharaonic funerary garden was unearthed by a Spanish archaeological mission working in Upper Egypt’s Luxor City, Egypt’s antiquities ministry announced Wednesday.
The ministry said the funerary garden has been unearthed at the open courtyard of a rock-cut tomb of the Middle Kingdom, dating back 4000 years ago.
The ministry added that it probably had a symbolic meaning and must have played a role in the funerary rites.
As one of the most ancient civilizations, Egypt has been hard at work to preserve its archaeological heritages.
Also, in an attempt to revive the country’s ailing tourism sector, which has suffered from an acute recession in the past few years due to political turmoil and security issues, Egypt is keen to uncover the Pharaohs’ archaeological secrets as well as other ancient civilizations throughout the history of this country.
