Trove of Ancient Egyptian Artifacts Discovered in Saqqara Necropolis Near Cairo
Archaeologists in present-day Egypt recently discovered a trove of artifacts, dating back some 2,500 years ago. The find includes 250 sarcophagi – which contain mummified remains – and 150 bronze statues of ancient gods. There were also bronze containers used in rites for Isis, the goddess of fertility. The relics were found in the Saqqara necropolis, near the Egyptian capital of Cairo. Archaeological work has been going on there since 2018.
