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. The necropolis is the first one to be discovered in the western desert village. What other mysteries and ruins remain hidden beneath the sands of Egypt?
