Hundreds of recently unearthed ancient artefacts dating back some 2,500 years were put on display by Egypt’s antiquities authorities on May 30, 2022. The coffins and statues were showcased at a makeshift exhibit at the Step Pyramid of Djoser in Saqqara, 24km (15 miles) southwest of the capital Cairo. The find included statues of important gods and a headless statue of the architect Imhotep, who built the pyramid at the pharaonic necropolis. The artefacts will be transferred to a permanent exhibit at the new Grand Egyptian Museum, a mega project under construction near the famed Giza Pyramids, due to open in late 2022.
