Egypt unveils tomb of early dynasty nobleman in the Saqqara pyramids

The tomb is located south of Saqqara, a vast necropolis south of Cairo, and belongs to a senior official named Khuwy. The 4,300-year-old tomb was made for a Fifth Dynasty nobleman and is adorned with colourful reliefs and well preserved inscriptions a month after being discovered. It is mostly made of white limestone bricks and is adorned with ornate paintings that contain a special green resin and oils used in the burial process. It comes a week after British engineers completed a £7 million ($9 million) restoration project on Egypt ‘s oldest pyramid that is also located in Saqqara.
