Egypt discovers 4,400-year-old tomb near the country's famed pyramids (Photos)

Archaeologists in Egypt have discovered a 4,400-year-old tomb near the country's famed pyramids at the Giza plateau just outside Cairo.

The tomb was unveiled to the media on Saturday,

According to the country's Antiquities Ministry, the tomb was found in a wider area of Giza's western necropolis, which is known to be home to tombs from the Old Kingdom.

The archaeologists say it likely belonged to a woman known as Hetpet, who they believe was close to ancient Egyptian royals of the 5th Dynasty more than four millennia ago.

The country's Ministry say the tomb is made of mud brick and includes wall paintings in good condition depicting Hetpet observing different hunting and fishing scenes.
