Ancient model garden found in Egypt

The remains of a nearly 4,000-year-old model garden have been discovered by archaeologists outside a tomb in the ancient Egyptian capital of Thebes, the antiquities ministry has said.

The 3m x 2m (10ft x 7ft) garden consists of equally divided square plots each about 30 cm (1ft) across, AFP news agency reports.

It was discovered in an open courtyard outside a Middle Kingdom (2050 to 1800 BC) tomb.
