The Pyramids of Giza are a place of inspiration and marvel holding mysteries of the past that intrigue our interests. One of the seven wonders of the world and a measure of masterful engineering the pyramids were immensely important to the legitimacy of the Egyptian pharaohs. The great structures remain strongly intact almost four thousands years since their establishment. Whether it be the creepy corridors, the cob-webbed rooms or even the hieroglyphic script that decorates the pyramid walls - thousands flock to the Great Pyramids every day.
And in a recent discovery, archaeologists in Egypt have uncovered a Pharaonic tomb containing 50 mummies dating back to 320 BCE in a site just south of the Egyptian capital, Cairo. Good new, I bet for you curious historians. The identities of the mummies, though, are still unknown with 12 of them being said to be of children. Unearthed from four deep burial chambers, the archaeologists suggest that these bodies were of important government officials since no names written in the hieroglyphic script were found nearby.
