MessageToEagle.com - It is time for yet another surprise straight from the land of the Pharaohs.

Archaeologists working in the ancient city of Luxor, Egypt have made a very rare find. During a dig the found a well- preserved painted, human-shaped sarcophagus that contained a 3,600-year-old mummy.

The mummy dates back to 1600 B.C., when the Pharaonic 17th Dynasty reigned in Egypt.

According to Egypt's state-run Al-Ahram newspaper "the find came during routine excavation work at the tomb of Djehuty, treasure holder for Queen Hatshepsut, at Dra Abul-Naga necropolis.

The sarcophagus is important for the detailed depictions of bird feather shapes and sizes painted on its lid, motifs that have earned it the title of Feathers Sarcophagi, according to Egypt's antiquities minister Mohamed Ibrahim.

The 2 metre long, 42 cm tall sarcophagus is in very good condition, Ibrahim said, and also engraved with titles of the deceased, which archeologists have not yet been able to identify.
Studies reveal that the sarcophagus belongs to a top governmental official from the 17th dynasty, whose mummy was enclosed inside, said Ibrahim.

The archeological team found two other burials at the site, which were both empty. It is believed that they were robbed in antiquity."

The excavations in the area will continue and scientists will attempt to identity the well-preserved mummy.

Recent weeks have been filled with success for Egyptian archaeologists. Recently during excavation work carried out inside a mastaba tomb found in Tel El-Tabila in Dakahliya, a collection of three skeletons, a large collection of ushabti figurines and two tombs were uncovered.

Beside the skeleton scientists discovered a collection of 14 amulets. The most important amulet is one depicting the Triod gods of Amun, Horus and Neftis.
