  • Archaeologists Unearth 17 Mummies in Newly-Discovered Egyptian Necropolis

    Ancient Egypt still has not revealed all her mysteries to modern archaeologists, new discoveries continue to provide more insight into the wonders of this ancient culture. Egyptian archaeologists discovered a necropolis concealing 17 intact mummies near the Nile Valley city of Minya on Sunday. The 17 bodies, which were extraordinarily well preserved within their bandages in the village of Tuna al-Gabal, were found with crockery items such as vases and cups, funeral masks and accessories, coins and papyri. Experts believe that, given the elaborated state of preservation of the mummies, the bodies belonged to priests and officials.

  • Coins Belonging to French King Louis XIV Discovered in Siberian

    Russian archaeologists showed off a rare find of 18th century coins and jewelry made in France during the reign of King Louis XIV which, believe it or not, were discovered in the extremely remote northern Arctic region of Russia's Siberia. The artifacts appear to have been obtained and treasured by the indigenous Selkup people for hundreds of years. How exactly the coins and jewelry arrived in Siberia has not yet been established, but they may have been used by explorers to trade with the indigenous people for food and furs when their own supplies dwindled down in the harsh Siberian climate. The find was discovered in the creek of the Taz River, which flows into the Kara Sea. The archaeologists also found Russian made iron knives with enamel patterning, a remarkable collection of Russian buttons, and ancient ornamental objects of the West Siberian and Ural regions, including earrings, rings and badges. All the findings will be transferred to the Shemanovsky Museum in Salekhard.
