A new archaeological discovery will be announced within few days

In a press conference in the Saqqara, the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities will announce the largest archaeological discovery in 2020 within the next few days. The excavations of the Egyptian archaeological mission operating in the Saqqara resulted in the discovery of new shafts with a huge number of colored human coffins buried inside, exceeding the number of coffins that were discovered and announced in early October.  The shafts have been closed for more than 2,500 years.  A number of gold artifacts were also found, including wooden statues and colored and gilded masks.  

The Egyptian archaeological mission announced, during the past years, a number of important archaeological discoveries in this region, the last of which was the discovery of 59 colored coffins with mummies in good condition for senior statesmen and priests from the 26th dynasty, which was announced.  This was announced in an international press conference early last October.
