Twenty-eight mummies were found in the vaults of a cemetery in the province of Al-Mina, south of Cairo, in the Tuna al-Jabal region of central Egypt.

The burial pits, found in the archaeological excavation area, lead to "a number of hidden passages within the mummies' vaults," according to the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, which confirmed that the burial site included 28 non-royal mummies.

The cemetery is considered "the first human cemetery in Central Egypt with so many mummies."

Mummies seem to be people of the "upper class", which is indicated by layers of gold covered by them.

The discovery was supervised by a team of researchers at Cairo University.
