Ancient tomb accidentally discovered in western Libya

According to the Antiquities Control Office in Mount Nafusa, western Libya, under some strange circumstances, the locals had noticed something odd emerging from under the ground what later was identified as an ancient tomb.

The way to the tomb had been allegedly washed by the groundwater coming from an aquifer. The sides of the tomb are lined with medium-sized polished limestone, the Antiquities Control Office officials explained.

The archaeologists say the architecture of the building and the artefacts found in the burial ground indicate that the tomb might be dated back to the second century AD (1, 800 years old).
