Rarely is an Egyptian tomb found untouched by grave robbers. But archaeologists have discovered the perfectly intact burial ground of an ancient Egyptian official.
The tomb was first found in 2006 at Abusir, which is near Cairo. The tomb’s burial chamber was only recently opened, though, by a group of Czech scientists. Located 33 feet underground, the chamber was filled with offerings and personal items that had been untouched for more than 4,000 years.
Neferinpu was the Egyptian official whose body rested in the chamber. He was not royalty, but rather a part of the middle class, so the tomb did not contain any silver or gold.
