Mahmoud Afifi, the Minister of Antiquities said in a press statement, "This discovery can shed light on a lot of information on the history of Abydos,"

"The size of the graves discovered in the cemetery is larger in some instances than royal graves in Abydos dating back to the first dynasty, which proves the importance of the people buried there and their high social standing during this early era of ancient Egyptian history."

Egypt is home to many world wonders which once used to be part of its early civilization.
