. Newly Excavated Burial Grounds in Egypt Reveal Ancient Mummies with Gold Tongues « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NEWS – On Sunday, the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities said on Facebook that a University of Barcelona–led archaeological mission had begun researching two burial tombs that may date back to the 26th Dynasty, which is believed to span from 664 B.C.E. to 525 B.C.E. One of those gravesites had never before been excavated. The archaeologists turned up two bodies—one a man, the other a woman. The man’s tomb had been totally sealed, making it a rare find. The woman’s quartz coffin, however, had already been opened, and according to the National, some of the objects contained within were not in good condition.
