Archaeologists have discovered the ruins of an ancient city more than 3,000 years old in the desert outside Luxor, Egypt, called the “Lost City of Gold”, the largest city site ever discovered in Egypt.

The Egyptian team led by Hawass found the lost city under the sand,” the archaeological team said in a statement today. The city is 3,000 years old, dating back to Amenhotep III, and was in continuous use by both Tutankhamun and Ay.”

The team said it was the “largest” ancient city they had ever found in Egypt.

According to a statement from the team, Betsy Bryan, professor of Egyptian art history and archaeology at Johns Hopkins University, said it was “the second most important archaeological find since the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb nearly a century ago “.

In addition to jewelry, colored pottery, sacred beetle amulets and clay tiles inscribed with the name of Amenhotep III were excavated.

According to the statement, “They excavated the ruins of a large city in a good state of preservation, with walls almost intact and rooms containing the tools of daily life.”

After seven months of excavation, several neighborhoods were also discovered, containing administrative and residential areas, as well as bakeries with ovens and pottery for storage.
