The sarcophagi have been buried underground for 2,500 years. 13 were initially found earlier this month before a further 14 were uncovered
It is believed the archaeological haul of 27 sarcophagi is the largest of its kind ever

In a statement on Saturday, Egypt’s Antiquity Ministry said: ‘Initial studies indicate that these coffins are completely closed and haven’t been opened since they were buried.’

The find is believed to be the largest of its kind ever and the ministry’s statement said that they hoped to reveal ‘more secrets’ about the discovery soon.

Alongside the wooden sarcophagi, smaller statues and artefacts were also discovered by the archaeological team.

Although having been discovered earlier, the ministry delayed announcing the news until Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani could visit the dig site himself to inspect the sarcophagi.
