Was about time the Museum was finished and ready to receive the splendours of ancient Egypt.When I visited the site of the new Museum 9 years ago I already thought oh well,that won't be too long before it opens...But then that proved wrong as Egypt had to deal with some change and violence over the years putting works on hold several times.

The venue is beautifull,impressive,overlooking the Pyramids from the hill,
and one is overcome with the intense sensation that on and under this sand lies a massive remnant of a time that saw a much more civilised world then the one we crawl around on these days.

As for tourists,they'll have to wipe out some sort of trash that is currently messing up on Egypt's soil,and only then tourists will flock down safely on this dusty but incredibly mysterious city again.

Thank you, Lucien, for putting my thoughts into words much more eloquently than I could and I totally agree.

One thing I am finding out through all the information I've been inhaling over the past decades in regards to these ancient peoples is that, unlike our current materialistic and physically absorbed societies, day to day life was much more centered around their spiritual lives and a moral way of living their lives.

These people had an extensive wealth of knowledge some of which we're just rediscovering today. One of the biggest crimes against humanity I think was the burning of the library at Alexandria. If only we could read those ancient scrolls today we probably would have a totally different outlook on this ancient land.

Zahi Hawass has since backed off from the claim a bit. He now says there "may not" be anything there and that excavations will need to be done at a future date.

Thank you for the update Laura. I always like Zahi Hawass for he was such a strong man when he was the head of the Antiquities Dept. He worked very hard to keep the artifacts in Egypt where they belong. There has always been lots of criticism about him yet he really protected the ancient history of his home land and for that I give him tons of credit. In reading about this culture and the history, I see Zahi Hawass as one of the pharaoh's of the past working to protect his kingdom.

Let's hope that they don't take years to start doing something that can be done now......

If you get any new info I would really appreciate hearing it, this is one of my favorite reading materials.

Thank you Eya for the news,

This is such thrilling news and just fabulous that there is a new discovery in ancient Egypt. Being someone who is an amateur Egyptologist any news of a discovery brings forth new info about the ancient world to light and the more we can learn from them.

Ditto on what M. Payton said!

The more that is found, the more of an understanding of what these people that lived in very ancient times we have.

As Sarah Parcak, an American archaeologist says, "Less than 1 percent of ancient Egypt has been discovered and excavated. With population pressures, urbanization, and modernization encroaching, we're in a race against time."

Thank you so much Eya for the news articles on Ancient Egypt. This is exciting news to actually find his temple....what a thrill for the archeologists in this dig. This is such great news and many books will be written and history will be updated now with real facts and evidence. Tried to save them yet now sure I did for I lose things on the internet. Anything else you find that comes your way, I so want to read it.....
