Egyptian archaeologists discover 83 new graves of mummies

A few days ago, the Egyptian archaeological mission affiliated to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities was able to discover 83 graves during excavation work in the Umm Al-Khilajan region of Dakahlia Governorate. Ministry officials indicated that 80 of the total number of graves dates back to the first half of the fourth millennium BC, a period known as the Bhutto civilization or Lower Egypt, and these tombs took the form of elliptical pits cut in the sand layer. Mummies were found in graves in the squatting position, and funerary items were found with these mummies.

This is the first time that pottery coffins dating back to the “Naqada III” period have been discovered In the “Dakahlia Governorate sites,” where tombs were previously discovered inside pottery coffins only in one case that the Polish Mission discovered in Tel Farkha. This disclosure is an addition to the site’s history, as it may be very intense during the “Naqada III” period, along with the density seen during the Bhutto incubation period, by revealing more tombs in which they were buried carried out inside coffins of pottery.

Pottery, stone, amulets, and motifs made of semi-precious stones were also revealed, some of which were inlaid with metals such as gold. The truth is that recent archaeological discoveries in Egypt have increased significantly, which indicates the interest of officials in this file. This is in addition to the fact that most of the discoveries came from groups of Egyptian archaeologists, not foreigners.
