New Tomb Found In Egypt.

 

Updated : Feb 9, 2009

Egyptian archaeologists have found at least 30 mummies and at least one unopened sarcophagus in a burial chamber, that’s over 4,300 years old. The Egyptian government said in a press release earlier today that archaeologists found the chamber in the desert on the western side of the Step Pyramid of Saqqara, one of the earliest large stone structures on the planet, dating from about 2,650 BC.

The wrapped up mummies appear to be from all ages. One dates from about 640 BC while the unopened sarcophagus, which is made of limestone and sealed with plaster, is probably much older. "We think it is Old Kingdom, maybe Fifth Dynasty," archaeologist Abdel Hakim Karar said. The Fifth Dynasty ruled Egypt from about 2,494 BC to 2,345 BC. The tomb will be opened in the next week!
