CAIRO – Archaeologists discovered a 4,400-year-old burial-place or Tomb , close to the pyramids on the outskirts of Egypt’s capital, Cairo.
The Egyptian Administrative agency of Antiquities revealed the findings on Saturday.
The burial-place might belong to a high-ranking official referred to as Hetpet, from the 5th dynasty of historical Egypt, the department added.
The tomb includes wall art work, wherein Hetpet seems to have various scenes of hunting and fishing.
Within those settings a monkey is illustrated, at that moment in time they were actually a typical domestic animal, gathering fruit and one more dancing before an orchestra, explained Mostafa Al-Waziri, director of the archaeological mission.
Hetpet, strongly believed to be close to royalty at the time, had another grave on the western acropolis of Giza, where the high “administrators of the Old Kingdom of Egypt are laid to rest”, he included.
