Archaeologists found a big cemetery under the sand near Cairo. It is a 2,000-year-old necropolis - a "city of the dead". It has many statues. Archaeologists found tombs belonging to Thoth. He was a god of the moon. People say he invented writing. Egypt's government said: "This is only the beginning of a new discovery."

Archaeologist Mostafa Waziri said he found eight tombs. He will find more. The tombs contain historic treasures. One includes over 1,000 statues and a sarcophagus (a stone coffin). He hopes the necropolis will bring more tourists to Egypt. Fewer have come since the revolution that happened in 2011.
