Egypt breakthrough: ‘Unexpected’ discovery stuns archaeologist as long-lost tomb FOUND | World | News

Imhotep was an Egyptian chancellor to the pharaoh Djoser, who is believed to have also been the mastermind behind the Step Pyramid in Saqqara. The Third Dynasty is remembered as being a great author of wisdom texts and also a physician, but the location of his tomb has been unknown for thousands of years, despite great efforts to find it. Until now.

Tony Robinson revealed during his new Channel 5 series “Opening Egypt’s Tomb” how a group of locals stumbled across what archaeologists believe to be Imhotep’s tomb.

He said: “I’ve moved to the southern city of Aswan.

“On the west bank, I’m meeting the Egyptian Government’s Director of Antiquities here in the city.

“Abd el-Monem has agreed to show me some new and unexpected tomb discoveries.

“Archaeologists had no idea these tombs existed, but people living close by did.

“In 2011, when violent uprisings caused chaos across Egypt, some locals shifted sand and smashed their way inside the tombs.”

Mr el-Monem then claimed it could have been the tomb of Imhotep after analysing the inscriptions within.

He said: “So far about nine tombs have been found.

“They broke in by using mechanical digging loaders and this was maybe more than 25, 30 people per night.

“Imhotep controlled Aswan around 1450BC, just a few generations before Tutankhamun and Ramses The Great.

“But it is not painted, it is not finished, Imhotep almost certainly died before work on his tomb was complete.”

The discovery comes after researchers believed they had made a new calculation over the Mayan calendar. 

Mayan elder Don Carlos Barrios claimed during Amazon Prime’s “Decoding Baqtun” series that the popular 2012 phenomenon was actually the mark of end times.

He said:  “We have what the Abuelos saw thousands of years ago.

“The next cycle of 13 is a cycle related to the air element, this is a confirmation of these great cycles.

“In these times, from 2012 to 2016, there were complications (Natural disasters) and from 2026 onwards, even worse if we have not managed to stabilise ourselves.

The next cycle of 13 is a cycle related to the air element and ether.

“Within 26 years, if humanity survives as such like now, there will be a special connection between all humans.”
