Waseda Egyptology team discovers 3000 year-old tomb

A team led by Waseda University Professor Jiro Kondo discovered a previously unknown tomb in the Theban necropolis in Egypt. The beautifully decorated tomb is thought to date to the Ramesside period (c. 1200 BCE) based on stylistic characteristics. The tomb was built for a man named Khonsu with the title of Royal Scribe.
