Lost city could be hope for Egypt tourism

Site close to River Nile believed to be 7,000 years old
Archaeologists in Egypt have discovered a city more than 7,000 years old and a cemetery dating back to its first dynasty in the southern province of Sohag. The find could help the country’s ailing tourism industry.
The city was probably once home to high-ranking officials and may provide new insights into Abydos, one of ancient Egypt’s oldest cities. Abydos is believed to have been the capital of ancient Egypt at the end of the pre-dynastic period and during the rule of the first four dynasties.
The discovery was made very close to the temple of Seti I, a more recent structure across the Nile from present-day Luxor. So far, 15 huge graves as well as huts, iron tools and pottery remains have been uncovered.
