Archaeologists have found the largest ancient city ever discovered in Egypt, dating back 3,000 years. The city, named “The Rise of Aten,” was “the largest administrative and industrial settlement in the era of the Egyptian empire,” lead archaeologist Zahi Hawass said. Archaeologists found the “city’s streets flanked by houses,” with intact walls up to 10 feet high and “rooms filled with tools of daily life … left by the ancient residents as if it were yesterday,” according to a statement released by the archaeologists. “The discovery of this lost city is the second most important archeological discovery since the tomb of Tutankhamun,” Betsy Bryan, professor of Egyptology at Johns Hopkins University, said.
