Large burial about 2,500 years old discovered in Egypt

A large burial was found in Egypt, in which more than a hundred intact sarcophagi were found. According to experts, the finds are about 2,500 years old.

According to the official version, the find dates from the late period of the history of Ancient Egypt (664-332 BC). Archaeologists believe that representatives of the nobility who held senior positions are buried in the sarcophagi. Having opened one of the coffins, experts found a mummy wrapped in cloth decorated with hieroglyphs. The burial was found in three mines located at a depth of 12 meters in the Sakkara necropolis, south of Cairo.

As France 24 clarifies, there are more than a dozen pyramids, ancient monasteries and places where animals were buried in Saqqara. The vast necropolis of the ancient Egyptian capital Memphis is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Earlier it was reported that the mummies found 400 years ago underwent computed tomography. It turned out that the remains belonged to a 20-year-old man, a 30-year-old woman and a teenage girl from 17 to 19 years old.
