A sarcophagus with two mummies, whose age is estimated at four thousand years, was discovered by archaeologists during excavations in an ancient cemetery near Cairo. The sarcophagus is made of limestone. In addition, statues of deities and gold jewelry were found in the burial. While the artifacts are being studied by archaeologists, they may later be presented to the “general public” in museums.
Recall that in November, after two months of restoration work, the second of the three famous pyramids of Egypt in Giza was opened for tourists — the pyramid of Khafre. According to the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, it is said that the pyramid is ready to receive tourists.
Ashraf Mohi al-Din, director of the Giza Plateau, told Travel NewsDay that the stairs leading to the pyramid were restored, changes were made to its internal lighting system, and weaknesses in its corridors and burial chamber were strengthened. In the near future, the third pyramid, the Pyramid of Mikerin, will be closed for restoration.
Recall that in total, the complex of the Pyramids of Giza includes three pyramids — Cheops, Khafre and Mikerin, as well as the famous Sphinx. They are considered mandatory components of excursions in Cairo for tourists.
