Archaeologists found three 3,500-year-old mummies in Egypt. They are a woman and her two sons. The woman may be the wife of a royal goldsmith. There was a statue of the goldsmith with the woman. The new mummies are near Luxor, 700km south of Cairo, Egypt. The woman was about 50 when she died.

A team of Egyptian archaeologists spent six years digging to find the mummies. One archaeologist said Luxor has one-third of the world's ancient monuments. He said visitors will enjoy the new mummies. They will help Egypt's tourism business. A top Egyptian archaeologist hopes they will find more mummies.
