Archaeologists excavating in Egypt have unearthed the foundations of the Temple of the Sun and blocks dating back to Khufu‘s reign at the open-air museum of Matariya, in Cairo’s Heliopolis. The science team has also found a number of mini sphinxes, and fragments of statues, including a huge baboon statue made of red granite.
In January 2023, a group of archaeologists excavating tombs in the ancient necropolis of Saqqara, near Cairo, discovered the mummified remains of a man named Hekashepes, who lived circa 2300BC. Found inside a limestone sarcophagus in a burial shaft, the body and its wrappings are unusually well preserved for the period.
