    Temple and coffins unearthed at Egypt’s archaeological site

    Archaeologists have been giving more details about a significant find at Saqqara, an ancient Egyptian site south of the capital, Cairo.

    News of the discovery of a temple broke on Saturday, and now the experts have been talking about the contents of more than 50 coffins that were unearthed.

    One of the coffins belonged to a soldier, and included his weapon – an axe.

    Other objects found included masks, wooden boats and a length of papyrus. Written on it was a chapter from what was described as a “book of the dead”.

    Games that the ancient Egyptians liked were placed in among the mummified corpses, so they could play them in the afterlife.

    The chief archaeologist said it was believed that those who won at a game called “Senet” would pass on to paradise.
