According to Egyptian historians, a unique discovery in the pharaoh Unas tomb helps to better understand advanced civilization of this period.
Ancient Egyptians lived in the lower reaches of the Nile River more than 4,500 before. The ancient Egyptian civilization had a great development, as evidenced by the fact that some buildings still stand today like the Giza pyramid .
Unas is the ninth pharaoh and also the last king in the fifth dynasty of ancient Egypt. He owns the smallest pyramid among the royal buildings that exist today, built in the city of Saqqara, Egypt.
Inside the pyramid, the pharaoh Unas built many rectangular tombs called mastaba to bury themselves and family members.
At first, everyone thought nothing special but historians had an interesting discovery of gas that studied the tomb of the pharaoh Unas.
"This is the entrance to Unas's pyramid tomb and this is the first pyramid with the writing and the mastabas for the pharaoh's children. At the time of the reign of the pharaoh Unas, Egypt suffered a famine. catastrophic due to drought and this is recorded in the entrance of the pyramid, however, pharaoh Unas has built many canals, droughts and famine quickly disappeared " , Egyptologist Ryan Woodside shared in a program for 2018.
In the tomb of Unas's daughter, the researchers also discovered many images showing the prosperity of Egypt at the time.
"The image shows a large number of cattle and fishing development on the Nile . Pharaoh Unas really turns Egypt into a prosperous country," Mr. Woodside added.
The blue color appearing on the pictures is also explained by the historians. Under ancient Egypt, green meant "to be born" and "to be healthy". It represents plants, new life and development.
However, the ancient Egyptians realized that the cycle of growth and fading, so blue, also involved death and the power of revival.
