A new archaeological discovery will be announced within few days
In a press conference in the Saqqara, the Ministry of
Tourism and Antiquities will announce the largest archaeological discovery in
2020 within the next few days. The excavations of the Egyptian archaeological mission
operating in the Saqqara resulted in the discovery of new shafts with a huge
number of colored human coffins buried inside, exceeding the number of coffins
that were discovered and announced in early October. The shafts have been closed for more than
2,500 years. A number of gold artifacts
were also found, including wooden statues and colored and gilded masks.
The Egyptian archaeological mission announced, during the
past years, a number of important archaeological discoveries in this region,
the last of which was the discovery of 59 colored coffins with mummies in good
condition for senior statesmen and priests from the 26th dynasty, which was
announced. This was announced in an
international press conference early last October.
