Royal tombs discovered at Abydos

Via Yahoo! News, a report from Egypt that archaeologists there have discovered a complex of 13 tombs at Abydos dating to the Old Kingdom, although the report says "3000 B.C.," which would place them in the 1st Dynasty, a period sometimes called Early Dynastic and distinguished from the Old Kingdom beginning in the 3rd Dynasty -- just sloppiness or an indication that these are particularly old? The tombs are possibly 'royal' according to the story, which just means possibly tombs of queens or high-ranking court officials and not Pharaohs. I'll post more details as they become available.

If you want to earn more when you become a therapist or holistic practitioner, then it
would make sense to have an open mind and move away from the mindset of treating your private practice as
though it is a hobby, right. It is not uncommon for massage therapists to consult
with physiotherapists before and during a massage. The
school or university should have what is called the Commission on Accreditation in Physical
Therapy Education (CAPTE).
