Archaeologists find new treasures of ancient Egypt
GIZA, Egypt (CNN) -- Archaeologists have uncovered new treasures of ancient Egypt: three exquisitely preserved wooden statues of a royal palace official, a small pyramid of an Old Kingdom queen and part of the queen's temple.
"This discovery proves that you never know what the sand of Egypt hides in secrets," said Professor Zahi Hawass, director of the antiquities-rich Giza plateau.
Bir Umm Fawakhir Project
Oriental Institute. Archaeological Survey in the Eastern Desert of Egypt. Bir Umm Fawakhir is the first intensively studied ancient gold-mining town in Egypt, and the only one of its period in the Byzantine empire. Fawakhir is one of only two excavated Coptic/Byzantine towns (vs. monasteries) of the 5th - 6th century in Egypt, and the other, Jemê, at Medinet Habu across the Nile from Luxor, was removed to reach the New Kingdom temple. Bir Umm Fawakhir and other recently explored sites in the Eastern Desert of Egypt indicate that the Byzantine government was not too weak to control the desert, as has long been thought, but in fact continued to exploit its economic resources.
