5,300-year-old city and cemetery found in Egypt

A team of archaeologists has discovered a city ​​and a 5,300-year-old cemetery 400 meters from Seti temple, in the city of Abydos, one of the most important political centers of ancient Egypt, reported the country's Ministry of Antiquities.

Huts, ceramic remains, stone tools and 15 tombs were found at the site. Mahmoud Afifi, Minister of Antiquities, explained that “The discovered tombs, in some cases, are larger than those of the kings at Abydos dating from the First Dynasty. This shows that the people buried there were important, as well as their high social position during this early era of ancient Egyptian history.«.

He added that «this discovery can shed light on the history of this city«, Abydos, which was the capital of Egypt at the end of the Predynastic period, reaching up to the first four Dynasties.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
