Predynastic Tomb Uncovered in Edfu

A British-Egyptian archaeological mission working in the Al-Kom Al-Ahmar area of the Upper Egyptian town of Edfu has discovered a pre-dynastic royal tomb of an unidentified king. A mummy found in the tomb belonged to a man who died in his late teens. 
Several objects, including a statuette of a man, arrow heads and several combs are also among the finds in this tomb.
