Egypt's antiquities officials inspect Saqqara Necropolis, with new discovery expected in 2021

(MENAFN- Daily News Egypt) Khaled Al-Anani, Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, inspected, on Monday, the excavations of the Egyptian archaeological mission working next to the pyramid of King Titi I in the Saqqara Necropolis.


The Minister was accompanied by Zahi Hawass, former Minister of Antiquities, and Mostafa Waziri, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.

The archaeological mission, led by Zahi Hawass, has discovered burial shafts with coffins and several artefacts from the New Kingdom.
