Archaeologists in Egypt have disclosed new findings at the Saqqara necropolis located in  South of Cairo. With the major strings of discoveries recently unveiled in Egypt, this is an update on the theory that a lot more need to be researched. The new findings include two human and animal embalming workshops, as well as the tombs of two priests.

Mostafa Waziri, Head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt stated that they discovered two large workshops, one for people and then used in mummifying animals, and the other for humans only. They also discovered beds, mummification instruments and materials.

He also stated that during the excavation, they discovered a tomb belonging to Ne Hesut Ba, a priest who served in the fifth dynasty of the old country 4,500 years ago.

Egypt hopes to attract 30 million tourists annually by 2028, up from 13 million prior to the Covid epidemic. The long-delayed opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum at the foot of the Giza pyramids is the crowning achievement of the government's approach.
