The discovery of 50 male, female, and child mothers in ancient Egyptian family tombs has been described as “amazing”

Egyptian Minister of ᴀɴтιQuιтιᴇs Dr Khaled El-Enany announced today the first significant archaeological discovery of 2019 at the Tuna El-Gebel archaeological site in Minya, south of the Cairo.

Fifty mummies in a good state of ᴘʀᴇsᴇʀvation were found within four Ptolemaic burial chambers, which appear to be family tombs.

“The newly discovered tombs are a familial grave which was probably for a family from the upper middle class,” El-Enany said.

Dr. Mostafa Waziri, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of ᴀɴтιQuιтιᴇs, said that fragments of papyri unearthed in the grave have helped to ʀᴇvᴇᴀʟ the date of the grave, which could go back to the Ptolemaic era (305 – 30 BC), the early Roman and Byzantine periods.
