On Saturday, Egypt exhibited more than 100 coffins dating back to 2,500 years. This is the most recent and biggest discovery this year in the massive cemetery of the Saqqara Necropolis.
The 26th Dynasty coffins that have been found are neatly fixed, finely painted, and very finely conserved. According to the secretary-general of the preeminent committee of antiquities, Mostafa Waziri, they were reportedly better than past finds there. Waziri proposed that they had found a place with families of higher position.
59 caskets were uncovered in August at a similar UNESCO world legacy site. More fortunes are required to be found there, said Waziri.
The newly found final resting places, in addition to related mummies and ancient rarities, will go in for public view at the Grand Egyptian Museum, which is estimated to open one year from now.
