I though this was interesting. Thought I'd share!
In 1996, at a remote Egyptian oasis called Bahariya, a man was
crossing the desert on his donkey when the animal stumbled. Its foot
had fallen through the sand, revealing a hole into a previously
unknown Egyptian tomb.
As law required, the area was cordoned off so that archaeologists
could examine the find. It turned out to be one of the most
significant discoveries ever made from the Greco-Roman period of
Egyptian history, from 332 BC until the fourth century AD.
Hundreds of mummies were buried there, along with thousands of
artifacts including coins, statues, and even board games. It is an
ancient graveyard revealing much about life in the declining
centuries of the Egyptian civilization.
