3200-year-old Egyptian Mummy Discovered In Brightly Painted Coffin

Spanish archaeologists have discovered a millennia-old mummy in “very good condition” near the southern Egyptian town of Luxor, the antiquities ministry said. The find was in a tomb probably dating from between 1075-664 BC on the west bank of the Nile river, 700kms south of Cairo, a statement said. The mummy had been bound with linen stuck together with plaster. It was in a brightly colored wooden sarcophagus and had been buried close to a temple from the era of fourth-millennium warrior king Thutmose III near the town of Luxor.
