4,300 year old tomb now open

The 4,300-year-old tomb of Mehu in Egypt has been opened for visitors for first time since it was discovered, 78 years ago. Found in the Saqqara necropolis, south of Cairo by Egyptologist Zaki Saad in 1940, the tomb has remained an archaeological site for many years. Mehu was the chief of the royal palace and the chief of judges during the sixth dynasty.

Archaeologists have learned a lot from the scriptures at the entrance to the tomb.
