New tomb found at Saqqara

A new tomb, dated to around 1100 BC, has been unearthed at the necropolis of Saqqara, to the southwest of Cairo. The inscriptions are said to be nicely preserved and show funerary processions. The tomb owner has been identified as an official in charge of foreign relationships.
The find may help us understand Egypt’s relationship with its neighbouring countries during the Ramesside period
