CAIRO (AP) -- Egypt's minister of antiquities says Japanese
archeologists have unearthed the tomb of an ancient beer brewer in
city of Luxor that is more than 3,000 years old.
Mohammed Ibrahim says Friday the tomb dates back to the Ramesside
period and belongs to the chief "maker of beer for gods of the dead"
who was also the head of a warehouse.
He added that the walls of the tomb's chambers contain "fabulous
designs and colors, reflecting details of daily life ... along with
their religious rituals."
The head of the Japanese team, Jiro Kondo, says the tomb was
during work near another tomb belonging to a statesmen under
III, grandfather of the famed boy-pharaoh Tutankhamun.
