Archaeologists have discovered a red granite head believed to represent the 19th dynasty pharaoh Ramses II. The find, measuring 75 cm in height, was made at Tell Basta, about 80 km northeast of Cairo. It is thought to be part of a giant statue of the king dating back 3,000 years, the rest of which has not yet been found.
