50 sarcophagi and a burial stamp from forgotten queen found

In Egypt, archaeologists have found a burial temple and about 50 sarcophagi at the ancient Egyptian necropolis of Sakkara southwest of Cairo.

The burial temple was erected for an Egyptian queen named Neith. Archaeologists have been working on the excavation of the temple for more than 10 years, but only when they found inscriptions on a wall and on an obelisk, could they identify who the temple was intended for, writes Artnet News.

‘I had never heard of this queen before. That is why we have added an important piece of knowledge to Egyptian history, “said the head of the excavation and former Minister of Antiquities Zahi Hawass to CBS News.
