In November, the Egyptian government announced the discovery of over 100 ancient coffins with at least one containing a mummy. Archeologists also found 40 gilt status and other artifacts in Saqqara burial ground near Cairo.

The coffins are rumored to be over 2,500 years old and are still in great condition. Though it is known that these coffins belonged to very wealthy people, not much else is known at this stage. Archaeologists hosted an opening of an excavated mummy to try and determine it’s age and gender

Egypt’s ministry of tourism and antiquities states that the coffins will be transferred to different museums across Egypt
