Archaeologists believe the site in

the southern province of Sohag

dates back to the time of

the First Dynasty.


Archaeologists in Egypt have discovered the ruins of an ancient city and an adjoining cemetery that date back 7000 years to 5,316 BCE.


According to a statement by the antiquities ministry, the site can be traced back to before Egypt's First Dynasty.

The find was made in the province of Sohag, and is situated 400 meters away from the King Seti I Temple at Abydos city, Egypt Independent reported.

Remains of huts, stone tools and pottery were found, indicating that the residential city supplied the labor force which would have been used for the construction of royal tombs.


The cemetery featured 15 large graves which according to Hany Aboul Azm, the head of the Central Administration of Upper Egypt Antiquities, could have belonged to high-ranking officials.

The discovery is of particular significance because it could provide insight on Abydos, one of ancient Egypt's oldest cities.


Based on earlier research, Abydos is considered to have been the capital of ancient Egypt towards the end of the Predynastic Period - the time before recorded history from the Paleolithic to the Neolithic Age.

"The size of the graves discovered in the cemetery is larger in some instances than royal graves in Abydos dating back to the First Dynasty, which proves the importance of the people buried there and their high social standing during this early era of ancient Egyptian history," the ministry said.

According to Yasser Mahmoud Hussein who led the archaeological mission, the graves are distinguished by multiple 'mastabas' - a type of ancient Egyptian tomb made of mud brick.


They are rectangular in shape and feature sloping sides and a flat roof.

"This discovery can shed light on a lot of information on the history of Abydos," antiquities minister Mahmoud Afifi said in a press statement.

The Osirion in Abydos, Egypt is without a doubt evidence of a lost, PRE-history human civilization that possessed some type of lost ancient high technology.


The people that lived in Egypt just a few thousand years ago that we commonly refer to as the "ancient Egyptians" (or the Dynastic Egyptians) could not have constructed this site, and there is actually zero evidence to suggest that they could have.


(Note that Osirion is also spelled "Osireon" and "Osireion")
