New discovery in Luxor

A Spanish archaeological mission working in Draa Abul Naga necropolis on Luxor’s west bank has discovered a unique funerary garden almost 4000 years old. The discovery of the garden may shed light on the environment and gardening in ancient Thebes during the Middle Kingdom, around 2000 BC.

A unique discovery out of Egypt is the first of its kind. While scenes of funerary gardens have been witnessed in mosaic’s and paintings, this is the first one discovered in situ. It comes with the root and trunk of a 4,000 year old small tree. And a bowl with dates and fruit inside. on May 3, 2017
