A collection of 100 intact, sealed and painted anthropoid 26th Dynasty coffins, golden funerary masks and a 40 wooden statues of Saqqara goddess Ptah Soker were unearthed in Egypt’s Saqqara Necropolis.
They were found in three 12- metre deep shafts, closed for more than 2,500 years.
It’s the greatest archeological discovery in 2020, but it is not the last one, as only 1% of the antiquities buried in the Saqqara Necropolis have been discovered.
The coffins will distributed among the Cairo Museum in Tahrir, the Grand Egyptian Museum, and the National Museum of Egyptian civilization.
