The mission uncovered this tomb while documenting the collection of pyramids that belong to King Djedkare Isesi who was the eighth and penultimate ruler of the Fifth Dynasty of Egypt in the late 25th century to mid-24th century BC, during the Old Kingdom.

The tomb is largely made from white limestone bricks and, notably, the inside is adorned with elaborate paintings and inscriptions made with royal colors. It comes a week after British engineers completed a £7 million ($9 million) restoration project on Egypt 's oldest pyramid that is also located in Saqqara.

Khuwy's tomb consists of a superstructure with an L-shaped offering room, which was decorated with reliefs.

Egypt is full of fascinating secrets and the desert never seems to stop unearthing the remains of an ancient civilization.

One theory is that Khuwy and Djedkare Isesi could have been related, while others say the tomb's unique design is the result of the pharaoh's reforms of state administration and funerary cults.

Saqqara served as the necropolis for Memphis, the capital of ancient Egypt for more than two millennia. Its decoration represents the tomb owner sitting in front of the offering table on the south and north walls. According to Egyptian antiquities minister Khaled al-Enani, some of these works were made using a special resin and oils that are used in the burial process.

The pharaoh-who reigned for almost 40 years between 2414 and 2375 B.C. -is considered to be one of the most influential rulers of Ancient Egypt, largely as a result of his administrative and religious reforms, according to Egyptologist Ahmed Saleh, Egypt Today reported.

In December 2018, officials also unveiled a private tomb containing what the Ministry of Antiquities called "exceptionally well-preserved" drawings at Saqqara.

The Saqqara burial site has been at the centre of attention of archaeological teams due to the large amounts of tombs found in the area.
