3000 old city discovered in Egypt

An ancient city in the desert outside Luxor dating back to a golden age of the pharaohs 3,000 years ago has been discovered in Egypt.  

Egyptologist Zahi Hawass announced the discovery of the “lost golden city”, saying the site was uncovered near Luxor, home of the legendary Valley of the Kings. 

“The Egyptian mission under Dr Zahi Hawass found the city that was lost under the sands,” the excavation team said in a statement 

“The city is 3,000 years old, dates to the reign of Amenhotep III, and continued to be used by Tutankhamun and Ay.”
