Italian archaeologists found ancient bowling hall during excavation work in a residential area since the Ptolemaic dynasty era 80 km away from Egypt's capital city of Cairo.

The spacious room's floor is covered with limestone tiles. The scientists' attention was attracted by a 20-centimeter-high path and the near placed two stone balls.

The unique facility is situated in a house. Papyruses, clay utensils and copper objects were also found on the spot.

After the finds' inventory they will be deposited for safe-keeping to Egypt's Culture Ministry.
