Ancient Egyptian father and son tombs discovered at Saqqara

Archaeologists have discovered two ancient Egyptian tombs, belonging to a father and his son, at the Saqqara necropolis in Egypt. The rock-hewn painted tombs were unearthed last week, and with at least one tomb never looted, are considered an important find. Dr Zahi Hawass, Egypt's antiquities chief, says the tombs belong to 6th Dynasty government official 'Shendwa' and his son, 'Khonsu'.
