Egypt unveils 3,000-year-old coffins at Saqqara necropolis

Egypt has announced another major archaeological discovery in Saqqara: a temple dedicated to a mysterious queen whose pyramid they found years ago. Her name has been revealed as Neit, wife of King Teti.
They have also found 22 funerary shafts filled with coffins and artefacts where archaeologists unearthed 54 coffins, some more than 3,000 years old.
The Saqqara necropolis is the vast cemetery of the ancient Egyptian capital of Memphis and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
