‘False Door’ From Egyptian Tomb Discovered At Roman Site

March 30, 2010

Egypt (ChattahBox) – A former Roman building that was excavated in the past held more than researchers had originally believed, including a door that was found to have been taken from the tomb of a high-ranking official in Queen Hatshepsut’s court.

The door originated from the tomb of User, who took a seat of office during the reign of Queen Hatshepsut in 15th Century BC.

He was given a tomb fitting his station at his death, an honor for a Pharaonic official  who had given service directly to the Queen.

But the door was taken by Romans years later and used as an entrance to a building formerly discovered near the Temple Of Karnak.

It is approximately 5 foot 9 inches tall, and covered in religious writings.
