For the second time this month, archaeologists unearthed an ancient Egyptian tomb in Luxor, a city along the Nile in Upper Egypt, according to the statement released on March 10 by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities. Led by collaborative efforts between the Ministry of Antiquities and the American Research Center in Egypt, it was discovered while the team was cleaning and restoring a nearby tomb. This is their second success.

Similar to the tomb which was discovered earlier this this month, the recently unearthed tomb is T-shaped with walls covered in colorful murals depicting daily life and festive scenes of the tomb owner, Sa-Mut, and his wife Ta Khaeet. He was a noble and high official.

The tomb is believed to date back to the 18 th Dynasty of the New Kingdom, some 3,000 years back between 1543 B.C. and 1292 B.C.

According to the statement released by the Ministry of Antiquities, "The tomb consists of a transverse hall and unfinished side chambers with shafts. It was robbed in antiquity and some of the texts and scenery were deliberately damaged."

The newly discovered tomb is located east of the one discovered earlier this month. Seeing that both tombs date back to the same era, it is likely that they also share the same courtyard, according to the ministry.

I only wonder if the team will unearth any more tombs before March comes to an end.
