Archaeologists in Egypt have unearthed a tomb dating back three millennia, yet another in a series of major discoveries that are hoped will revive Egypt’s floundering tourist industry.

Located near the Nile city of Luxor, the tomb is the resting place of Userhat, a judge from the New Kingdom.

Excavations are on going, but a collection of ancient relics, including figurines, masks and a handle of a sarcophagus lid, have already been unearthed.

Tourism in Egypt has suffered in the aftermath of the country’s recent political instability, but it is hoped that the finds will have a positive effect on the sector.
