Archeologists in Egypt unearth 3000-year-old tombs
Thursday - 1/10/2013, 6:33am EST
CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's Antiquities Minister says Italian archaeologists have unearthed tombs over 3000 years old in the ancient city of Luxor.
Mohammed Ibrahim says the discovery was made beneath the mortuary temple of King Amenhotep II, seventh Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty who reigned from 1427 to 1401 B.C. The temple is located on the western bank of the Nile.
Ibrahim says remains of wooden sarcophaguses and human bones were found inside the tombs.
Mansour Barek, head of Luxor antiquities, says jars used to preserve the liver, lungs, stomach and intestines of the deceased were found. They were decorated with images of the four sons of the god Horus _ figures seen as essential by ancient Egyptians to help the soul of the deceased find its way to heaven.
