A wooden sarcophagus found at an undisclosed location in Egypt has been discovered by Spanish archaeologists from Jaen鈥檚 University at the Qubbet el-Hawa necropolis in Aswan, Egypt.

Encased in soil, this extraordinary discovery faces emerges into the sun for the first time in thousands of years. The wooden sarcophagus was unearthed by archaeologists at the necropolis of Qubbet el-Hawa in Aswan, Egypt.

Since starting the fresh excavation, they have also discovered 20 mummies and uncovered a tomb dating from around 1830 BC.

He said that his team comes from a number of different disciplines which allowed a broad focus.

“It has also allowed them 鈥榯o develop new techniques such as RTI or scanning in 3D which helps read hieroglyphic texts with greater accuracy,鈥 he added.

The team had already found two smaller tombs in earlier digs.

Qubbet el-Hawa necropolis was in use from 2250 BC and provided the last resting place for some of the country鈥檚 most important officials.

A string of 40 tombs cut into a rocky cliff face, the burial ground also forms one of the best vantage points of the city of Aswan.
