"An Egyptian farmer found under his residence an over 3,000-year old temple with important inscriptions and drawings from that time, belonging to the New Kingdom (1539-1075 BC). The site, in the locality of Sohag, 500 kilometers south of Cairo, was found six meters deep in a place where it is thought that there are other temples of pharaohs of the 18th and 19th centuries.
According to local Al Ahram daily, on the walls are written names of kings, inscriptions and drawings.
Archeologists continue with excavations to find new buildings devoted to divinities Anoris and Miht of the New Kingdom."
This is the entire item on the Plenglish website.
