Egyptian archaeologists have uncovered an ancient burial site containing 50 mummies dating back to the Ptolemaic era.

Mummies of men and women in wrappings, some of which still bear fragments of colored cartonnage, along with 12 children and infants wrapped in linen, or decorated with Demotic handwriting , were found within the chambers.

Pottery, papyri and colourful mummy cases were also unearthed.

Egypt has made a series of archaeological finds recently, and it has been heavily promoting them to revive its tourism industry, a staple of its economy that was decimated by the chaos that followed its 2011 uprising.

He added that Anany, Tourism Minister Rania al-Mashat, Minya Governor Qasem Hussein and 13 ambassadors from Arab and European countries visited various archaeological sites of Minya, including Tuna al-Gabal, Tell al-Amarna, and Bani Hassan on Friday evening as part of their tour in Minya to participate in the announcement of the new archaeological discovery.

Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for Antiquities Mostafa Waziry said that the discovery announced on Saturday is lovely, and features many artifacts and ancient mummies. Fifty mummies in a good state of preservation were found within four Ptolemaic burial chambers, which appear to be family tombs.

Unearthed by a joint mission with the Research Center for Archeological Studies of Minya University, this is the first major archeological find of 2019 announced by the team.

In April of that year, the ministry invited reporters to the southern city of Luxor to unveil eight mummies discovered in a 3,500-year-old tomb belonging to a nobleman.

It was the second discovery of mummies announced with much fanfare by the government in less than a month.
