Was discovered 15 large burials, which indicate the high status of the buried people there.
Archaeologists have discovered in Egypt ancient town and cemetery, built in the year 5316 BC. BBC News notes that the discovery was made by local, not foreign, scientists.
Ruins of the ancient city are within 400 metres from the Memorial temple of SETI I at Abydos. Archaeologists at the site found fragments of huts, pottery and tools of stone. Also discovered 15 graves that indicate the high status of the buried people there.
Experts say that the finding may shed light on the many data of the history of Abydos, and be an incentive for the development of tourism in the country, which is in decline since 2011, when ousted President Hosni Mubarak.
The American expedition working in the Egyptian city of Abydos, in 2014, discovered and partially explored the burial of two previously unknown pharaohs. One of them, Seneca, rules 3.7 thousand years ago.
