  • Colorful 4,000-year-old Egyptian tomb intrigues archaeologists

    (CNN) The deserts of Egypt continue to reveal the secrets of a fascinating ancient civilization best known for its towering pyramids.
    And now the country's Ministry of Antiquities has unveiled a well-preserved tomb with inscriptions and colorful reliefs dating from more than 4,000 years ago.
    The tomb is thought to belong to an official named Khuwy, who was believed to have been a nobleman during the Fifth Dynasty, a period spanning the 25th to the 24th century BCE.
    Minister of Antiquities Khaled al-Enani took a party of foreign ambassadors and other officials to inspect the tomb, the ministry said in a tweet.
