7000-year-old city discovered in Egypt

7000-year-old city discovered in Egypt
25 November 2016 Current Affairs: Egypt recently uncovered a lost city, more than 7000 years old dating right back to its first dynasty in the southern province of Sohag. 

The site was unearthed during an archaeological mission initiated by the country’s government. It lies 250 miles south of Cairo, about 400 meters away from the temple of Seti I, one of the most famous religious sites in the region named after one of the least known pharaohs of the New Kingdom period of Ancient Egypt.

The discovery includes huts, pottery remains, iron tools and 15 graves. The grave sizes look bigger than some of the royal ones belonging to the kings in Abydos, indicating that those who were buried beneath held a high social standing. 

Going by these evidences, experts suggest that the city could have been home to high-ranking officials and grave builders. Its discovery is expected to throw more light on one of Ancient Egypt’s oldest cities- Abydos. Abydos was Egypt’s capital at the end of the Predynastic Period and during the rule of first four dynasties.

The find has come at a time when the country’s tourism industry, which was once its main source of income, is in the process of falling apart. Political unrest and terror threat from Islamic State (IS), which controls large areas of neighbouring state Libya, have been the major deterrents for tourism. The first half of 2016 just saw 1.2 million tourists, down from 14.7 million in 2010. 

The discovery, however, may bring a welcoming change for the country.
