Antiquities Ministry to announce 3 significant archaeological discoveries

Minister of Antiquities Khaled al-Anani announced that the ministry is in the process of announcing three important archaeological discoveries in the governorates of Sohag, Luxor and Giza, adding that the ministry is currently working on projects to remove underground water from archaeological sites and has already implemented three projects at a cost of LE300 million.

“We have three discoveries, the first of which we will announce this weekend from Sohag. Then two weeks later [the second will be announced] in Luxor, and [the third will be announced] at the beginning of May in Giza. Besides the discoveries, we will inaugurate projects. Recently an important project was launched on groundwater that threatens the monuments,” Anani told Russian news agency Sputnik on Saturday.

“Some of the artifacts have sunken since they were discovered, such as the Koum al-Shakafa area in Alexandria and the Kom Ombo Temple in Aswan Governorate,” he said.

“We inaugurated three groundwater projects in 32 days at a cost of LE300 million. On March 3, we opened the Kom al-Shakafa area project in Alexandria. On March 25, we inaugurated the Kom Ombo project in Aswan, and on April 5 the Ozrion area in Sohag,” he added.

It is possible that groundwater caused the collapse of these temples, so the ministry has been working on groundwater management in order to save the sites, he mentioned.

Anani noted that two of these projects were funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

Kom el Shqafa was vastly improved when we were there in February, and I saw the lowest level for the first time of four visits since my first in 2003.

One of the announcements is now made (via Google translate). If I can find a better version I will add it later.


Revealing a double cemetery for a man and his wife with human remains and a set of birds and animals of the duck era

This detection is located in the area of Aldi in the city of akhmim in the case of sohag, which is a double cemetery of the duck era of a person who claims " TOTO " and his wife " TA ISIS " which was the position of the Hathor.

This is in addition to human remains and a bunch of birds and animals

The location of this tomb and its entrance was found during the arrest of a gang while attempting to dig in the area outside the archaeological hill of the Aldi area. Immediately after the completion of the tourism police and the effects of investigations, the ministry of Antiquities received the site and the archaeological and scientific excavations began through an Egyptian Archaeological Mission Headed by Dr. Mostafa Minister of the Secretary-General of the high council of Antiquities, the works of the fire have found the rest of the cemetery in human remains and a group of birds and animals.

The Cemetery is in good condition of conservation and is characterized by the beauty of its inscriptions and its bright colors where photos on the side of its entrance are a scene of the God anubis receives toto once, and I bought ISIS again, in addition to the view of the trial in front of God Osiris and Behind the two daughters ISIS and nephthys..

The Inscriptions also carry names of some members of the tomb mate family, including the names of both her father and her mother, and the father and mother of her husband.

The cemetery consists of two rooms, the entrance of the second room in the Egyptian Corniche, the winged sun disc, either the blame for another sun, written on the side of the title of horus, the Lord of heaven.

During the archaeological excavation, the mission found the limestone of limestone in human buried, as well as a range of birds and animals, which indicates that the cemetery has been re-used in later ages as a coward for animals and birds. .

One of the most important animals of the animals found is the eagle, the falcon, the Ibis, the animals of the dog, the cats and the rodents (mice).
