Ancient Egypt: Mysterious 4,400-Year-Old Tomb Reveals Rare Paintings in New Excavation

Janissa Delzo, Newsweek • February 3, 2018..


An ancient Egyptian tomb, dating back more than 4,000 years, was discovered by archaeologists about 12 miles outside of Cairo, the country’s capital. The finding marks the first discovery to be announced in 2018, Ahram Online, an Egyptian news organization, reports.

The tomb is thought to have belonged to “Hetpet,” a high-ranking female official, Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry announced. The mud-brick tomb is in good condition and features various paintings of Hetpet, who was a priestess to Hathor, the goddess of fertility.

I wasn't considering the job for myself, but now that y'all mention it....
I can be what ever I say I am.
