Ornately decorated and covered in hieroglyphs-
archaeologists in Egypt have discovered 27 unopened coffins at the ancient necropolis of Saqqara, that are estimated to be more than 2500 years old- according to the ministry of tourism and antiquities.
The coffins were found stacked in two burial shafts at the UNESCO world heritage.
Saqqara is home to one of the world's oldest pyramids.
In March, Egypt reopened the Djoser’s Step Pyramid after a 14-year-restoration, costing nearly $6.6 million.
The pyramid dates back about 4,600 years.
In July, Egypt restarted international flights and reopened major tourist attractions after months of closure.
