3,000-year-old carving Discovered in the Largest Mud-Brick Temple


Ancient Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II offers gifts to Geb, god of earth, in a 3,000-year-old carving discovered in the largest mud-brick temple yet found on northeastern Egypt's northern Sinai Peninsula (map).

The landmark is among four ancient temples discovered at a site near the Egyptian border near the Suez Canal, the country's archaeology agency announced on April 21.

Very interesting, I would love to see all these things live one day, love history and old cultures and the things they have left us to find.

Wow - how exciting that they are discovering new temples! It is silly of me but I thought all the discovering had been done!
