Egypt: 5,200 year-old ancient drawing unearthed

The rock drawing depicts a royal festival during Ancient Egypt`s earliest dynasty.



Cairo: Egypt`s Antiquities Authority says archaeologists have unearthed a 5,200-year-old rock drawing depicting a royal festival during Ancient Egypt`s earliest dynasty.

The ministry says the scenes were part of a series of rock drawings featuring hunting, fighting and celebrations along the banks of the Nile River.

Antiquities chief Zahi Hawass said in a statement on Monday the scenes represent the first unearthing of a complete drawing of a royal festival during Dynasty Zero, when the earliest foundations of Ancient Egyptian culture are believed to have been formed.
A joint US-Italian expedition team discovered the unique drawings in the southern city of Aswan, a hub of archaeological treasures.
