A team of archaeologists, under the guidance of Professor José Manuel Galán from the Spanish National Research Council, has made an interesting discovery in Egypt.
They found a 4000 year old funerary garden at a tomb in Luxor, Egypt. This discovery is the first of its kind. This discovery also shed some light on Luxor, which became the capital of the Egyptian kingdom around the same time the garden was built.
Archaeologist have known about the existence of these gardens for some time now, as they appear in illustrations found on the tombs.
This particular garden is rather intricate. It consists of small rectangular boxes that are situated half a meter from the ground. Two trees were planted next to the garden. Archaeologists hope that this garden will provide them with some insight into the state of the environment in ancient Luxor (Thebes).
