Badcopnews.com – A mysterious coffin discovered by archaeologists in Egypt two weeks ago was opened today.
Reporting from the EPA, Friday (20/07/2018), the Ministry who deal with ancient bendo in Egypt specifically appointed the team assigned to open the coffin found in one construction area.
The mysterious coffin that had not been touched for 2,000 years was made of black granite in Alexandria.
They initially opened this little chest, about five centimeters, but the team members faced the smell from inside a very stinging chest.
The second casket opening effort was aided by a team from the Egyptian military.
“All we get is the bones of three people, it’s like a family funeral … unfortunately the mummy in the crate is not in good shape, so what remains is bones,” Mostafa Waziri, secretary-general of the council in charge of ancient items, said.
Waziri dismissed rumors that the chest contained the lethal curse of Pharaoh, as the crowd talked about.
It weighs about 27 tons and is thought to have been from 323 BC or after the death of Iskandar Agung.
Archaeologists are now doing an in-depth study to determine exactly when the owner of this skeleton lived and how they died.
