Archaeologists in Egypt have uncovered 27 wooden coffins. The coffins were buried about 2,500 years ago. They were found in an ancient burial site. Some were discovered in early September. Others were found later in the month. Archaeologists are continuing to work at the site. They are trying to learn more. Khaled El-Enany is Egypt’s minister of tourism and antiquities. He says the discovery is “very exciting.”
