| ||Two new tombs were discovered in the past two weeks in the site of Sheikh Abd El Qurna, in Luxor, by the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE), with the support of USAID and the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities. Both tombs date back to the prosperous 18th Dinasty of the New Kingdom and were discovered while mapping the adjacent courtyard of Theban Tomb 110 (TT110).
The first tomb, discovered last week, belongs to Amenhotep, who is also called Rebiu, the door-keeper of god Amun. As the Ministry of Antiquities reported, the tomb is T shaped and consists of a transverse hall 5.10 metres long and 1.50 metres wide that leads to another chamber that is 2.50 metres long and 2.10 metres wide. There is a small unfinished niche at the eastern end and there is also an entrance to the south that leads to a small side room which is 2x2 metres. At the centre of this room there is a shaft that may lead to the burial chamber.
