Ar­chae­ol­o­gists have un­cov­ered an an­cient Egyp­tian tomb be­long­ing to a royal gold­smith (some­one who makes or sells items made from gold) called Amen­emhat.

The tomb dates back 3,500 years, to the time of King Tu­tankhamun, and was found near the Val­ley of the Kings – a burial ground for sev­eral pharoahs. Four mum­mies, jew­ellery and arte­facts, which in­cluded 150 stat­ues, were found within the tomb’s burial cham­ber.
