LUXOR, Egypt, 14th January, 2023 (WAM) - Archaeologists have unearthed a royal tomb while working in the Western Valley of the Theban Mountain on Egypt's Luxor's West Bank.

"Current examination on the ceramics and fragmentary inscriptional evidence recovered so far [indicates] it is the tomb of several members of the royal family of the Thutmosid period of the 18th Dynasty," said Mostafa Waziri, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.

The 18th Dynasty lasted from 1550 to 1292 BC and the tomb is located in Valley C, one of the western valleys, just below the Neferure's cliff-tomb.
