Archaeologists digging at the Abu Sir cemetery have unearthed a cache of vessels related to the Egyptian process of mummification. The dig, which is led by the Czech Institute for Egyptian Science, found 370 ceramic vessels that contained remnants of the materials used in mummification. They also discovered four empty limestone Canopic jars. The cache was discovered in a well measuring over 16 feet (5 meters) in diameter and 13 feet (14 meters) deep, and dates to the 26th Dynasty (664 BC–525 BC). This discovery will help further our understanding of the materials used in mummification. The Egyptian process of embalming the dead is mentioned in Scripture: both Jacob/Israel (Gen. 50:2) and Joseph (Gen. 50:26) were embalmed when they died in Egypt.
