An Egyptian archaeological mission led by archaeologist Zahi Hawass, has unearthed 3000-year-old "Lost Golden City" (The Rise of Aten) in Luxor.

“Many foreign missions searched for this city and never found it. We began our work searching for the mortuary temple of Tutankhamun because the temples of both Horemheb and Ay were found in this area,” Hawass said.

Well, that's the controversial Dr. Zahi Hawass for you, again achieving what no one else has achieved before.

No Archaeologists, Anthropologists, Geneticist, Geologists or Egyptologists are given a permit for access to Egyptian Archaeological sites unless they strictly conformed to Hawass’ doctrines. No one has been allowed to publish new findings. All information including; documentaries, articles, press releases, TV documentaries and National Geographic have been under the fanatical control of Hawass. He has blackmailed other countries by expelling foreign Archaeologists and suspending digs until artefacts from Egypt have been returned. This is how he first became known to the public, demanding the return of thousands of artefacts from around the world and threatening countries with legal action otherwise. Now, this is just staggering hypocrisy considering Hawass has been looting artefacts from Egyptian museums and Archaeological sites, writes Naomi Astral...

[..] Hawass returned to Egypt to teach Archaeology and expanded his influence on Egyptology. Hawass said that he resigned from his position as Chief Inspector of the Giza Pyramid Plateau in 1993. According to others, Hawass was fired because a valuable ancient statue was stolen from Giza. This became the main feature of Hawass’ career, ‘disappearing artefacts’ and private visits to Egyptian ancient sites for the rich and famous. This however, did not hamper his career prospects; he continued to dominate Egyptology for almost 3 decades and was appointed Secretary of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities in 2002. Hawass was promoted personally by President, Hosni Mubarak in 2009 as Vice Minister of Culture.

It was in the 80’s when Hawass rose to personal fame when he began his intoxicating love affair with TV, magazines and books which made him a household name. There have been countless reports regarding his lecherous nature towards the young female Archaeologists, his vile explosive temper and his poor approach to Archaeology. Many genuine Archaeologist and Egyptologists have been horrified at his 'unscientific approach' and his disregard when examining ancient mummies.

Hawass masterminded the planning and initial construction of the $550 million Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza. When completed in 2015, it will be the largest Archaeological museum in the world, housing more than 100,000 artefacts and expecting around 5 million visitors per year. It’s just a pity that the billions made in tourism, documentaries, books and magazines has not improved the lives of the locals who live in dire poverty.

Hawass is narcissism on a stick, last year he launched a clothing line named after himself in Harrods, and his last book, ‘A Secret Voyage’ is Egypt’s most expensive book ever, carrying a price tag of 22,000 Egyptian pounds [about £2,300] with only 750 copies printed.

Quite recently Hawass was facing yet another corruption charge regarding a $ 17 million deal he made for the king Tut tour.

So something has been unearthed and it probably took a pretty long time.

Having heard a lot about Hawass I'm pretty sure many other people and probably foreigners working there were involved. Will he give them credit for the part they played?
