"We want tomorrow's newspapers to speak about Egypt and make people want to come to Egypt", Antiquities Minister Khaled el-Anani told reporters, reflecting the country's desperate need to revitalize tourism.

A small figure of one of the couple's sons rests between their legs. Additionally, the researchers found more than 1,000 wooden funerary statues that were found in a 3,500-year-old tomb near Luxor. The antiquities ministry on Saturday said that the mummies of a woman and her two children were found inside it.

An incredible mummy-filled tomb belonging to a royal goldsmith who lived more than 3,500 years ago has been uncovered in Egypt's famed Valley of the Kings.

Earlier this year, authorities announced they had discovered another New Kingdom tomb in Luxor belonging to a judge, and Swedish archaeologists discovered 12 ancient cemeteries near the southern city of Aswan that date back nearly 3,500 years. The shaft had three mummies.

Mostafa Al-Waziri, who led the team that discovered the tomb, said it belonged to 18th dynasty goldsmith Amenemhat and his wife Amenhotep. Experts said initial analysis of the mummies shed light on the diseases from which the deceased were suffering, as well other aspects of how they lived.

A group of mummies from the 20 and 21 dynasties were also found, and a large well 8 meters deep.

"This is not the end".

Egypt's Minister of Antiquities Khaled Al-Anani said on Saturday the tomb dated back to Egypt's 18th dynasty New Kingdom era - around 15th century BC. Several pottery pieces were found inside the tomb, along with Oshepti statues also in good condition. "This will lead to more discoveries in the future", Waziri said.

Parts of a 3,000-year-old colossal statue, believed to have stood about 30 feet tall, were found in Cairo in March.
