Ancient Egyptian ‘industrial zone’ uncovered in Luxor’s ‘Valley of the Monkeys’

New archaeological discoveries have been made in Luxor, Egypt, -including an “industrial zone,” according to the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities.

Archaeologists found 30 workshops in an area “composed of houses for storage and the cleaning of the funery furniture with many potteries dated to Dynasty 18,” reports Reuters.

One finding was in the West Valley, also referred to as the Valley of the Monkeys, reports Ahram Online, and the other was in the East Valley, which is home to the country’s famous pharaonic tombs.
