Egypt discovers rare tombs, inside are amulets and semi-precious stones of jewelry
Two sets of tombs were discovered in the Nile Delta. The first set of tombs dates back a whopping 5,000 years, before the first Pharaohs ruled the area. A second set of tombs dating back to the Hyksos period of 1650 BC to 1500 BC was also discovered, and these tombs contain the jewelry.
"The Hyksos tombs were mainly semi-rectangular with the corpses lying in an extended position and the head also facing west.
"The mission also found a group of ovens, stoves, remnants of mud brick foundations, pottery vessels and amulets, especially scarabs, some of which were made of semi-precious stones and jewelry such as earrings," the statement said."
This discovery is more confirmation of how important jewelry was to Ancient civilizations.
