Archaeologists in Egypt have discovered a 3,500-year-old royal tomb near Luxor. The tomb was probably built at a time when Hatshepsut, a female pharaoh, was co-ruling ancient Egypt.

“Partial inscriptions and ceramic evidence suggest that this was constructed during the joint reign of Thutmose III and Hatshepsut,” archaeologists said in a statement.
