A rare trove of 30 ancient wooden coffins that have been well-preserved over millennia have been found in Egypt, in the archaeologically rich Valley of the Kings in Luxor.
The antiquities ministry officially unveiled the discovery made at Asasif, a necropolis on the west bank of the River Nile, against the backdrop of the Hatshepsut Temple.
It is the biggest find of its kind in more than a century.
The 30 ornately decorated coffins of men, women and children were found only three ft underground, stacked in two rows. They are believed to belong to family members of high priests.
