Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany will announce the discovery of a new tomb at a gala ceremony in Luxor on Saturday morning.

Although the ministry has not released any information shedding light on the identity of the tomb’s owner, its design, date or any funerary objects unearthed within it, archaeologists describe it as “important.”

“The tomb is rich in its funerary collection and it reveals the job and health condition of people who are buried within it,” a member of the excavation team told Ahram Online on condition of anonymity.

Many different types of tombs belonging to kings, queens, nobles and officials from pharaonic Egypt have been excavated in Luxor.
