"When archaeologists lifted the lid on an Egyptian coffin that had been stored at Sydney University for 150 years, they got an enormous surprise. "They had no idea the 2500-year-old coffin was filled with human remains. "Researchers are now using the latest scientific technology to piece together an ancient mystery."

What an amazing find.
"A Spanish archaeological mission working in Draa Abul Naga necropolis on Luxor’s West Bank has discovered a unique, almost 4000-year-old funerary garden, Mahmoud Afifi, head of Ancient Egyptian Antiquities, announced Wednesday. "This archaeological discovery confirms an aspect of ancient Egyptian culture and religion that was hitherto only known through iconography. "Afifi explained that the funerary garden was unearthed in the open courtyard of a rock cut-tomb of the Middle Kingdom. "The layout of the garden measures 3 x 2 meters and is divided into squares of about 30 cm. "These seem to have contained different kinds of plants and flowers. In the middle there are two elevated spots for a small tree or bush. "

"Khaled el-Anani told a news conference on Thursday that the colossus discovered last week in an eastern Cairo suburb almost certainly depicts the Pharaoh Psamtek I, who ruled Egypt between 664 and 610 BC."

This is horrifying, whether it happened three years ago, or yesterday. Archaeological sites should be cherished and respected, not abused in this manner.
