Archaeologists Discover 3,300-Year-Old Tomb in Israel

Israeli archaeologists are announcing the discovery of a tomb, which contains bronze and ceramic artifacts, and a ceramic coffin, from the Bronze Age, some 3,300 years ago.
Inside the tomb archaeologists found a small golden scarab inscribed with the name King Seti I of Egypt who is believed to be the father of Ramesses II. Many of the other items in the grave suggest that whoever was buried in the tomb was Egyptian, however there is also some Canaanite items so it is not clear who the tomb was built for.
