New ancient graves discovered in Egypt 30 coffins in good condition at Luxor2019.10.28
IN mid-October, archaeologists in Egypt (埃及) announced their discovery of 30 intact ancient coffins, all newly uncovered near Luxor (樂蜀). The oldest of them can be traced back to nearly 3,000 years ago. Some experts have called this the most important discovery in Egypt in recent years.
These coffins were mostly from the 22nd Dynasty, meaning around 1000BC. The coffins, which hold the bodies of 23 men, five women and two children, appeared well-preserved and still brightly coloured on both the outside and inside.
Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities (文物部), led by Khaled al-Anani, said the coffins were buried nearby a temple of Hatshepsut, who was once a ruler of Egypt.
