A Czech archaeology team has discovered the tomb of a previously unknown queen in Egypt, according to media report on Wednesday.
The tomb was found in Neferefre's funeral complex, which is located in an Old Kingdom necropolis southwest of Cairo in Abusir. It's believed that the queen was Neferefre's wife.
The tomb, dating back to the middle of the 5th Dynasty (2994-2345 BC), has an inscription that indicates its owner was the "king's wife." Archaeologists also found about 30 utensils made from limestone and copper.
"This discovery will help us shed light on certain unknown aspects of the Fifth Dynasty, which along with the Fourth Dynasty, witnessed the construction of the first pyramids," Egypt's Antiquities Minister Mamdouh el-Damaty said.
In a statement, the minister called the queen Khentakawess III, noting that this is the "first time we have discovered the name of this queen who had been unknown before the discovery of her tomb."
