Second Dynasty Tomb Found at Lahun

Egyptian archaeologists have found a Second Dynasty tomb at Lahun, in the Fayum. This is an important discovery because Egyptologists had previously thought that the first building in the Fayum had occurred in Dynasty Twelve.

A coffin, some spears and a bed made from wood imported fom Lebanon were found in the burial chamber.
