New Tomb Found at Abydos

     A new tomb has been found at Abydos in Egypt. Only the substructure still exists, but archaeologists are pretty sure that a small pyramid was built above the burial chambers.

     The tomb dates to the New Kingdom and contained multiple burials and may have been owned by multiple persons who served in the Egyptian military. The tomb is fairly large and elaborate for a private tomb.

     An article and some photos can be found here.
