Israeli archaeologists recently discovered a burial cave that could date as far back as 3,300 years to the time of Ramesses II in Egypt.
Pharaoh Ramesses II is thought to be the pharaoh from the biblical story of the Exodus from Egypt from the Bible.
After they found the site, Eli Yannai, an expert on the Bronze Age at the Israel Antiquities Authority, studied the pottery found inside.
"[It's a] find of a lifetime," says Yannai. "It’s like a set from ‘Indiana Jones’ — a cave with vessels on the floor that haven’t been touched for 3,300 years."
The time of the pharaoh's reign lasted from 1279 B.C. to 1213 B.C.
The discovery offers archaeologists a full picture of how Egyptians used to bury the dead, especially the royalty such as a pharaoh.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the burial cave was discovered accidentally at the construction site of Palmahim Beach National Park on the southern Israeli coast after a tractor moved a rock and revealed the cave’s ceiling.
The cave contained many items of value including bronze arrowheads and spear tips. Inside were also amphorae and bowls of various types and forms, cooking vessels and oil lamps.
