Two tombs dating back 3,500 years to the famous Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt have been discovered in the country's south.

Archaeologists found one tomb with five entrances leading to a rectangular hall, and another with a six-metre burial shaft leading to four side chambers.

Work is now being done to restore items found in each tomb, Egypt's Antiquities Ministry said.

Wall inscriptions suggest the tombs date to the 18th dynasty, pharaohs who ruled some 3,500 years ago.

A mummy wrapped in linen was discovered in the larger tomb with the rectangular hall.

However, the identity of those buried are yet to be identified.
