Their age is about 4.5 thousand years.
British archaeologists from the University of Birmingham found near the city of Aswan in southern Egypt six graves that belong to the era of the first dynasties of the pharaohs.
According to the Secretary General of the Egyptian Council of antiquities Professor Mustafa Vaziri, and all burials are of different sizes. Two tombs are carved directly in the rock.
The entrance to one of the burial chambers were tightly sealed, but scientists hope that it is not looted, is not justified. It turned out that the thieves managed to get inside through a hole done at the top.
Despite the fact that in the tombs visited by robbers, the archaeologists were able to find a metal amulet with the image of the ancient Egyptian God Khnum, fragments of funerary masks and other artifacts. All the finds were sent to the Aswan Museum for a thorough examination, the Agency MENA.
