When it comes to finding something mysterious, chances are, it wouldn’t end well… at least, that’s what we've learned from movies.
13 mysterious sealed mummy sarcophagi, which contained human mummies from over 2,500 years ago were recently discovered in an Egyptian well.
The unopened coffins were found piled on top of each other, nearly 12 meters deep in the well. According to Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, the coffins were so well preserved that the original detailed designs and colours were still visible.

The discovery was found in Saqqara, an ancient site that is about 20 miles south of Egypt’s capital. It’s believed to be the world’s oldest site.
“It’s an indescribable feeling when you witness a new archaeological discovery” Khaled El-Enany, Egypt’s minister of tourism and antiquities said.
The identities of those in the coffins are still a mystery.
In April, archaeologists also unearthed four caskets which contained mummies together with 5 limestone sarcophagi in a burial shaft.
