Ancient tomb unveiled in Egypt

25 November 2018 11:11

A previously unopened sarcophagus was opened for the first time on Saturday (November 24) as two Egyptian discoveries were unveiled in Luxor’s west bank.

The intact sarcophagus contained a well preserved mummy of a woman named Thuya and dates to the 18th Egyptian dynasty.

It was discovered earlier this month by a French-led mission in the northern region of El-Assasif, along with another anthropoid sarcophagus which was opened and examined.
