Seven men were arrested in Giza, Egypt last week after they dug up a 3,400-year-old temple under a house there, the Egyptian news website Ahram reported.
The antiquities police briefly detained the suspected looters but released them once it became clear that the area where the temple was found is not an official heritage site.
"Modern Egypt is literally stacked on top of old Egypt, so there’s a lot to find," British archaeologist Nigel Hetherington, who has worked extensively on the restoration of Egypt’s heritage, told The Telegraph.
