Big discovery 100 years later:A 3400 year old gold city buried in the sand in Egypt was found here, a mummy of Tutankhamen made of 10 kg of gold

A city about 3,400 years old was found in Egypt
Archaeologist Hawass says it was the largest industrial city in ancient Egypt.

Egyptian archaeologists have found a lost 'city of gold' on the west bank of the Nile River in the southern state of Luxor. It is considered to be the greatest achievement since the discovery of the tomb of the most famous king of Egypt, King Tutankhamen (Tut) in 1922.

Archaeologist Jahi Hawass, a former Egyptian minister of state for archeology, made the announcement on his Facebook page. The nearly 3,400-year-old city has been found buried in the sand near the famous King's Valley in Luxury. This is the same place where the mulberry tomb was found. About 5,000 valuable artefacts, including a Tutankhamen mummy made of 10 kg of gold, were also found in the tomb. Interestingly, that discovery was made inadvertently. A team of archaeologists reached the buried city while searching for the Tutankhamen mortuary temple.

The name of the city is Aten, founded by King Amenotepe-3, the ninth Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty. So let's first look at the pictures of what has been found so far in the city of gold ...

Now let us understand from the area what was found in the excavation and what is its significance? First let's find out what we got ...

Vertical walls 10 feet high.
Snake-like walls around the administrative area.
Houses built along roadsides.
The grave of a person buried.
Graves of cows and oxen buried in rooms.
A large bakery, with a furnace and storage.
Clay brick making workshop.
Molds for casting glass and metal
The black kit means the sacred amulet rings of ancient Egypt like the Guberla.
Colored earthenware
Pots of wine
Clay bricks on which the functions of Amenotepe-3 are inscribed. (The cartridge was an oval hieroglyph of ancient Egypt, with only a royal name written on it)
Spinning and weaving tools.

The name of the city is Athena and was
settled by Amenotep-3. There he came to power between 1391 BC and 1353 BC. It is said to be a good time in Egypt. Egypt was then at the forefront of its power and cultural heritage. Archaeologist Hawass says it was the largest industrial city in ancient Egypt. Never before have such large quantities of pottery and artefacts been found in the excavations of ancient cities.

A large bakery in the southern part, the best food for the employees
have been found in the kitchen is a large bakery in the southern part of the city. Which has space for cooking and preparation. There is a place to keep furnaces and pottery. Looking at the size of this bakery, it is easy to say that it was used to cater to a large number of employees.

Archaeologists have found a container of marijuana in the city, which contained about 10 kg of dried or boiled meat. It reads, "In the year 37, this ornamental meat is eaten for the celebration of the third heb saddle" (Kha) has been brought to the slaughterhouse with the slaughterhouse, prepared by the butcher Louie. Archaeologist Zhi Hawas says this is important information, including the names of two people who lived and worked in the city during the co-reign of Amenotep-3 and his son Akhenaten.

The legs of the buried man were tied with ropes and there was
a weapon near the hand. Her legs were tied with ropes. This method of burial is considered quite different from tradition. In the same way a cow and an ox are also found buried separately inside the rooms.

The only way to get to and from the jig-jag wall is to
investigate excavations in another part of the city, but this part appears to be administrative and residential. In this, large buildings are built with thought in mind. The area was cordoned off. A jig-jag-shaped tidy wall has also been found. About 10 feet high this wall can be crossed from only one place. This is proof of a wall controlled security system.

Workshop found in third area of ​​the city Factories have also been found in the third area of ​​the city, including clay brick making spaces. Archaeologists have also found models for the casting here. Perhaps amulets and delicate decorative items were made here. Evidence for making metal and glass objects with spinning and weaving tools has also been found here.

Complete excavations are yet to be completed, and it could take up to five years
. However, full excavation of this northern part of the city is still pending. They said the excavation began in September 2020. It can take up to five years to complete.

Ethan was eventually evacuated

Aten was eventually evacuated and settled at Amarna, 400 km north. The reason for this is still a mystery to archaeologists today.
