An American archeological mission discovered a large palace dating back to the Roman period in Amhada area, the Dakhla Oasis in the New Valley. 
The palace's structure was found complete but it cannot open to visitors due to erosion factors, said director of antiquities at Dakhla Maher Bashandi on Monday 20/6/2011.
A replica of the palace will be built so people can see it, he said. The American mission had translated the writings found inside the palace, from which it learnt about new archaeological contents in the area related to agricultural and educational activities prevalent in ancient times, he said.
The inscriptions suggest that farmers in Ancient Egypt might have worked in the Oases area before heading to the Nile Valley, he said.
