Egypt: 100 more Coffins from 2500 years ago

Recommended Posts



The 26th Dynasty coffins, which were sealed, finely painted and well-preserved, were of a higher quality than previous discoveries, according to the secretary-general of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, Mostafa Waziri, who suggested they belonged to high-ranking families.


These 100 coffins displayed in November 2020 come after some of another group of 59 coffins were opened in August 2020.



Summary: It is good to see that despite COVID-19, every effort is being made to discover and preserve antiquities. Hopefully, images of mummies and other antiquities sold in the market place by unscrupulous vendors will become a thing of the past
