Egyptian archaeologists found a rare intact mummy dating to pharaonic times when they had opened a sealed limestone sarcophagus in the shadow of the world's oldest standing step pyramid at Saqqara.
Since I visited Louvre and I saw this mummy I ask to myself how much mummies they can find yet.
I like History,specially this part of it.

It is unusual to find intact burials in well-known necropolises such as Saqqara, which served the nearby city of Memphis, because thieves scoured the area in ancient times.

"I always say that we have found 30 percent of the Egyptian monuments, and still 70 percent is buried underneath the ground,"the archaeologist had said.
I'm waiting for more and more discoveries like it.
