Ancient Egyptian Tomb found with spectacular art

A recently discovered 4,300 year old tomb belonging to a high-ranking official is covered in colorful reliefs and well-preserved inscriptions. The tomb dates to the Fifth Dynasty, around 2400 BC.
Saqqara, where archaeologists made the latest discovery, once served as the necropolis for the Ancient Egyptian capital of Memphis, located on the west bank of the Nile, around 15 miles south of Cairo.
