Ancient tombs and prehistoric burials found in Nile Delta
Tombs from the Second Intermediate Period and 20 burials from the Naqada II era have been uncovered in Kom Al-Khelgan area in the Nile Delta
Mostafa Waziri, secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, told Ahram Online that the tombs date back to the Second Intermediate Period and include animals burials, a collection of broken burned clay pots, rounded and oval pots with holders, as well as seven amulets and scarabs carved in faience and decorated with well-known motifs of the era.
Meanwhile, the 20 burials contain a collection of skulls and skeletons in the bending position and which are in a very poor state of conservation. Other skeletons buried towards the north and west of the site were also found.
A funerary collection of clay pots, stone instruments, and knives made of flint were also unearthed. Further excavations will continue at the site.
