A 3,000 year old Egyptian city has been discovered near the Nile river.

A team of archaeologists found the large ancient city which they believed was called Aten.

Aten is one of the most important finds since the tomb of the famous ancient Egyptian pharaoh (or king), Tutankhamun, was found.

The city was uncovered near Luxor which is near the home of the Valley of the Kings – which is an ancient royal burial site.

The team began digging in September 2020, between the temples of the pharaohs Ramses III and Amenhotep III.

The archaeologists found jewellery, coloured pots, scarab beetle amulets, and mud bricks.

Then after seven months of careful digging, several neighbourhoods were uncovered, including a bakery complete with ovens and storage pottery, as well as work and residential districts.
