  1. Egyptians Reveal 30 Mummies from 3,000 Years Ago

    In one of the biggest such discoveries since the 19th century, Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities announced Saturday that archaeologists had uncovered 30 sealed wooden coffins containing perfectly preserved mummies near the city of Luxor, site of the ancient capital of Thebes. The coffins have been labeled the "cachette of the priests," since some of the mummies appear to have been priests buried around 3,000 years ago.

    Where will the collection be displayed? Next month, the coffins will be moved to the Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza, just outside Cairo.
