Egypt Opens Two Ancient Pyramids And Unveils Newly Found Sarcophagi And mᴜmmіeѕ

A collection of newly found sarcophagi, some containing well-preserved mᴜmmіeѕ have been unveiled when Egypt opened two ancient pyramids located south of the capital Cairo.

The Bent Pyramid of King Sneferu, the first pharaoh of Egypt’s 4th dynasty, and a nearby pyramid would be reopened to visitors for the first time since 1965.

Pharaoh Snefru (Sneferu) was the founder of the 4th dynasty during the Old Kingdom. Snefru is considered the greatest builder in Egyptian history, who reigned from around 2613 BC to 2589 BC, according to Manetho, an Egyptian priest, living in the third century BC.

According to Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani, a team of archaeologists had uncovered sarcophagi and the remains of an ancient wall dating back to the Middle Kingdom some 4,000 years ago, reports Daily Sabah.

The finds were made during excavation work in the royal necropolis of Dahshur on the weѕt bank of the Nile River, in an area home to some of Egypt’s oldest pyramids.

“Several stone, clay and wooden sarcophagi were found and some contain mᴜmmіeѕ in good condition,” the antiquities ministry said.

The ancient wall ѕtгetсһeѕ some 60 meters and is situated south of the pyramid of 12th dynasty pharaoh King Amenemhat II, also in the Dahshur necropolis.

The finds also included funerary masks as well as tools dating back to the Late Period — which spanned almost 300 years up to Alexander the Great’s conquest of Egypt in 332 BC — used for сᴜttіпɡ stones, the ministry said.
