Archaeologists unearth 3000-year-old stunningly preserved Egyptian
Egyptian archaeologists revealed a whole ancient city dating back 3,400 years has been found under the sands of Luxor, as seen on Friday, in what is being regarded as the most important discovery in Egypt since the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922.
The team led by Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass found the city, which is the largest uncovered from ancient Egypt, last September and unveiled the discovery to the world on Thursday.
"We made one of the most important discoveries in the West Bank of Luxor. It is the largest city ever found it. It was called 'the dazzling Aten' dated to the reign of King Amenhotep III," Hawass said.
"We found one portion of the city, but the city is extended north and west to be the largest city ever found in Egypt," he told the press, adding that archaeologists call the city 'the lost city' because "no one really ever thought that the city, 'the dazzling Aten', could be discovered."
Numerous discoveries have been made on-site, including the finding of skeletons, pottery, amulets and other ancient artefacts.
