Stunning pictures of the tomb provided by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities have been shared on media, with people exclaiming to the significant findings. Reports further state that the treasure tombs date back to the Middle, New Kingdom and the Late Periods, which took place in the years from 1994 B.C. to 332 B.C. The discovery has been made in the area of Asasif Necropolis, which has earlier appeared in the news too for its ancient findings. The area is also known as Asasif Tombs because it is surrounded by burials.

Egypt and archaeologists’ discoveries get along perfectly well. The ancient civilization’s glories were buried under layers of different cultures only to surface again centuries later with historians embracing the study of Egyptology. At the beginning of this month, archaeologists discovered the oldest copy of a “map for the soul to attain eternal life,” inside a coffin.
