I stumbled upon this exciting news just a moment ago and felt the fine members of ATS should be informed


A new tomb is always an incredibly exciting find. There's always so much potential for learning an incredible amount of information from them, opening another door to a more clarified human heritage. It's very awe inspiring to think of all the amazing things and stories we've left behind, all just a few feet under a pile of sand.





Miroslav Barta of the Czech Institute of Egyptology and his team have discovered the Old Kingdom tomb of a previously unknown queen named Khentkaus III in a small cemetery to the southeast of King Neferefre’s pyramid complex. She had been buried with four copper tools and 23 limestone vessels. Inscriptions in the tomb list the queen’s titles as “Wife of the King” and “Mother of the King.” Barta thinks she may have been the wife of King Neferefre. “If we can assume that the queen was buried during the time of King Nyuserre (2445 B.C.-2421 B.C.), based on a seal that bears his name that was found on the tomb, we could say that Khentkaus III is the mother of King Menkauhore who was the successor of Nyuserre,” team member Jaromir Krejci told The Luxor Times.

Very cool find - I do wonder what "limestone vessels" are though?

Limestone vessels (Canopic Jars) were used to store the internal organs after embalming and mummification. Usually they had writing carved on them in later dynasties.

Or maybe these were her favorite cookware?

I think the people who worked on the bodies wore head masks because they were respirators to filter out the stink. Anubis respirators complete with eye protection. Osha approved at the time.

If anybody has wondered around aimlessly through the Field Museum in Chicago Illinois, you will have the treat of a lifetime in the Ancient Egypt exibit.

I have several times, which makes this discovery even more special to me.

Good find,

i always remember a documentary years ago, about a team putting a RC car with camera down a long shaft, and finding a door at the other end, and as far as i'm aware it hasn't been opened yet...... just amazing!

wouldn't it be apt for ATS, if when they open the door, they find alien tech?

(but i'm sure i'm just wanting)

Peace!

I think this is one of them



The other one has a similar protuberance emerging from a saddle consisting of Imhoteps face

That's obviously brass, not copper.
