Archaeologists discover three ancient tombs in Egypt by Noblex: 6:15 pm On Aug 15, 2017
Archaeologists have discovered three tombs that date back around 2,000 years in southern Egypt.
Egypt's antiquities ministry said the discovery "suggests that the area was a great cemetery for a long span of time"‼️
One of the tombs, which was reached through a shaft carved in rock , contained 4️ sarcophagi that had been sculpted to depict a human face.
Clay fragments found at the site date the tombs between the 27th Dynasty, founded in 525BC, and the Greco-Roman era, which lasted between 332BC and the 4th Century.
Ali al-Bakry, head of the mission, said one of the tombs contained bones believed to be the remains of "men, women and children of different ages".
