Archaeologists excavating at the necropolis at Saqqara, 20 miles south of Cairo, have unearthed 300 ornate coffins from the New Kingdom period. This discovery is the first time burials from this era have been found at the site. It appears that the coffins were all buried near the pyramid of Teti, a pharaoh of the Sixth Dynasty of Egypt who was worshipped in the New Kingdom period. In ancient Egypt, people often wanted to be buried near pharaohs who had been deified. In addition, the excavation team discovered the pyramid of a heretofore unknown queen named Neith (after the Egyptian goddess of the same name). Little is known of her yet, but that may change as her pyramid is fully excavated.
