Last Saturday, the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities reported on the discovery of an ancient cemetery near the Pyramids of Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo.

Mostafa Waziri, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, explained that the cemetery encompasses tunnels and many graves of high officials, as well as a limestone statue dating from the V Dynasty (2465-2323 BC).

The head of the archaeological site, Ashraf Mohi, explained that the cemetery was reused in the Late Period (664-332 BC), having found in the place anthropoid coffins of painted wood, and funeral masks of painted wood and clay, all very typical of that time.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
