7000 years old Egyptian city and cemetery found

A more than 7,000 year-old city and a cemetery dating back to the first dynasty has reportedly been discovered in Egypt’s southern province.

Archaeologists made the discovery only 400 metres from the temple of Seti I in Sohag and have so far found huts, pottery remains, iron tools and 15 large graves, The Guardian reports.

According to the news organisation, the unearthing of the city – which is likely to be the home of high-ranking officials and grave builders – may provide new insights into Abydos, one of the Egypt’s oldest cities.
