Egyptian scientists find a tomb. It is in Luxor. It is 3,500 years old. The tomb is from the 18th dynasty.

There are mummies in the tomb. One mummy is of a goldsmith. His name is Amunhat.

Scientists find more. There are many historical things. There are statues, for example.

Difficult words: tomb (a room for dead people – in Egypt, it is a room for mummies and their things), 18th dynasty (the 18th kings and queens of Egypt), goldsmith (a person who makes gold things and jewellery).
