‘Pompeii-like’ city ‘
The excavations were found to be in very good condition. In the rooms the historians found everyday utensils such as pots, but also (parts of) statues, rings and scarabs. Archaeologists also found ovens used to make glass and pottery. Because the Pharaoh City was discovered in September last year, a large part has not yet been excavated.
American Egypt expert Peter Lacovara speaks to Reuters news agency of a “Pompeii-like” city, referring to the Roman archaeological site in Italy. He calls the find a “very important discovery,” which provides insight into what life was like during the reign of the mighty Pharaoh Amenhotep III.
