Egypt discovers lost city more than 3,000 years ago

Researchers in Egypt announced the discovery of a lost city, approximately 3,400 years old.

Athen, as it was known, would have been founded by King Amenhotep III, who ruled Egypt 1391 to 1353 B.C.

Archaeologists believe that the site, on the western bank of the River Nile, was one of the main urban centers in the country at that time.

The city was close to some of the country's best-known monuments, in the city of Luxor.

According to archaeologists, the finding may be the most important in nearly 100 years.

Urban center

Research on Aten, which was located last Thursday, 6, is expected to continue.

"The discovery of this lost city is the second most important in archeology since Tutankhamun's tomb," Johns Hopkins University professor of Egyptology Betsy Bryan said in a statement.

Betsy added, saying that the ruins of Aten, "will provide us with a rare portrait of the life of the ancient Egyptians, at a time that can be considered the height of the empire".

City of kings

Zahi Hawass, leader of the mission, said other groups had searched for Aten for years, but never found her.

Excavations began in September for another reason: the group wanted to find Tutankhamun's mortuary temple. However, they found an entire village!

“Within a few weeks, to everyone's surprise, outlines of clay brick walls began to appear on all sides.

What the scientists discovered was the location of a large city in a good state of preservation, with almost complete walls and rooms full of objects of daily use, preserved for thousands of years ”, says the statement.

In addition to houses, a bakery and an administrative center, archaeologists found a large cemetery.

Unraveling history

"The expedition is already working in these locations and our mission hopes to find mausoleums still untouched, full of treasures," says the statement.

The lost city is yet another in a series of recent discoveries made in the country.

All of these findings help to better compose the panorama of the dynasties that ruled ancient Egypt.

The current government hopes that the news will help revive the tourism industry, the country's main source of income,
