A New Mummy Discovered In Egypt

By – Mohamed Nabil

Mummy found inside sarcophagus in Luxor tombs that also contained statues and figurines, according to The Guardian.

A well-preserved mummy of a woman inside a previously unopened coffin dating back more than 3,000 years has been unveiled in the southern Egyptian city of Luxor.

The sarcophagus was one of two found earlier this month by a French-led mission in the Al-Assasif necropolis on the western bank of the Nile.

The first one had been opened earlier and examined by officials, but Saturday’s unveiling was the first time authorities had opened a previously unopened sarcophagus before international media.
