Dra Abu el-Naga yields 11th Dynasty Tomb

A new tomb and cachette dated to the 11th Dynasty were discovered at the site of Dra Abu el-Naga, on the Westbank of Luxor. The well carved burial chamber, thought to have been built for a member of the royal family, is still being excavated and may yield some new interesting finds that help us understand the 11th Dynasty better.
Pottery and tools dated to the 17th Dynasty indicate that the tomb was reused several centuries later.
