    Archaeologists in Egypt have announced a major discovery.
    More than 100 wooden coffins with well-preserved mummies, along with and some 40 gilded statues in a vast pharaonic necropolis south of the capital, Cairo.
    The discovery was displayed on Saturday in a makeshift exhibit at the feet of the famed Step Pyramid of Djoser at Saqqara, a site that was the cemetery for the ancient Egyptian capital of Memphis and is now a UNESCO world heritage site.
    It is home to more than a dozen pyramids and burial sites.

    I hope they do a proper analysis. King Tut's tomb was faked by the British. It was the tomb of a female ruler and there is evidence
    based on established tomb construction protocols that it could not have been for a male ruler. The British faked the hieroglyphs
    which have degraded unlike the real ones found in tombs. This is because they failed to properly "cure" the paint like the original
    tomb makers would have done. The various statuettes inside the alleged Tut tomb are clearly female ones. And no period
    Egyptian tomb maker would have thrown the furniture and personal possessions into some dump-style pile. It was ultra important
    for them to have everything arranged for the afterlife. And Tut's golden head sarcophagus was a patch job unlikely to have been
    an original.

    Manipulation of history is one of the routine tricks of western imperialists.

    Skeletal remains of 2 killed in Vesuvius eruption found in Pompeii

    Remains of two victims of the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius, which took place nearly 2,000 years ago, have been discovered in Pompeii

    The footage shows the remains of the victims, believed to be a man and his male servant. The remains were discovered in a side room of an underground corridor of a villa on the outskirts of the ancient city during excavations. Findings suggest the two victims had survived the initial fall of ash but were killed in a powerful volcanic explosion the next day
