egyptEgyptian tourism is in full bloom as the archaeologists discovered two small ancient tombs in the southern city Luxor that dated back to some 3500 years ago.

The Egyptian officials announced on Saturday that the archaeologists discovered the two tombs and they are excavated and researched by the prominent researchers.

There are excavators found the tombs in the necropolis of Dra’ Abu el-Naga in Luxor that dated back in 18th Dynasty (1550-1292 B.C.) belonged to royal officials who likely served here at the ancient capital of Thebes, now a UNESCO world heritage site and a prominent tourism destination.

In spite of having the several terror attacks in different places in Egypt turning down the economical and tourism value, this discovery is helping in reviving the tourism opportunities and the tourism revenue as well.

The tombs in the necropolis were surveyed numbered by German Egyptologist Friederike Kampp-Seyfried in the 1990s. Located near the west bank of Nile River, the vault known as Kampp 161 was never opened, while the tomb identified as Kampp 150 was only excavated to its entrance. The tombs were recently re-discovered and excavated by Egyptian archaeologists.

Egypt is a place of historical mysteries and the country is dotted with the thousand years old necropolis and the pyramids. The tourism here is totally dependent on the pyramids. The foreign excavations and the archaeological expeditions are one of the major trails in Egypt forming the back bone of Egyptian tourism.
