A remarkable 3,400-year-old necropolis has been discovered at an Egyptian quarry site, the Ministry of Antiquities announced on Wednesday.

Consisting of dozens of rock-cut tombs, the New Kingdom necropolis was found at Gebel el Sisila, a site north of Aswan known for its stone quarries on both sides of the Nile. Blocks used in building almost all of ancient Egypt's great temples were cut from there.

"While the identities of the individuals buried there have yet to be determined, the researchers believe that they would have been of higher rank than the quarry workers". - See more at: http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/news/293122/ancient-necropolis-found-near-aswan-egypt#sthash.h75tr61z.dpuf

I don'y know how they will do this based on the erosion mentioned earlier in the article. Isn't the second part of the sentence a "Captain Obvious" statement?
