Archaeologists in Egypt discover trove of mummies

Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry on Tuesday announced that eight pharaonic-era mummies had been unearthed near the Great Pyramids of Giza west of capital Cairo. 

In a statement, the ministry said that archaeologists had found several limestone tombs containing a number of coffins southeast of the Pyramid of King Amenemhat II (1919-1885 B.C.) in Giza’s ​​Dahshur area.

According to Mustafa Waziri, head of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, the archaeological mission has been excavating in the area since August.

Waziri dated the mummies -- three of which, he said, were in very good condition -- to Egypt’s Late Period (1085-332 BC).
