An unusual cache of at least 13 wooden coffins dating back to 2,500 years ago has been discovered in the desert necropolis of Saqqara in Egypt.
What makes these coffins so special among the thousands interred in the tomb complex is the fact they have remained intact for millennia, and are still completely sealed - hundreds of years after their inhabitants died.
They're so well preserved, even some of the colours painted on the wood are still intact.
An initial analysis has found that the coffins have likely been sealed since they were buried.
Inside the burial shaft, three sealed niches were also found.
Minister Khaled Al-Anani said that it's likely there are more coffins in the shaft yet to be discovered.
The names and identities of the people buried in the coffins are yet to be discovered. »
