A Swedish-led team of archaeologists has discovered the remains of a 3000-year-old temple in southern Egypt. The Lund University mission, led by Dr. Maria Nilsson, discovered the temple at the Gebel el Silsila quarry, north of Aswan, where they have been working since 2012.

The temple, which dates to the ancient Egyptian New Kingdom, had been previously described by excavators in 1906, 1925, and 1934, but had fallen into obscurity.
