Mummified Animals Over 6000 Years Old Discovered In Egypt

Archaeologists were left saying ‘mummy mia’ after they unearthed mummified animals believed to be 6000 years old.

At least 200 cats, 200 scarab beetles along with crocodiles and cobras were found at the site of Saqqara near Giza, Egypt.

Located near the Ancient Egyptian capital, Memphis, the ancient burial ground is believed to be in honour of the goddess Bastet, the goddess of protection and cats.

Nigel Hetherington, from Past Preservers, was at the unveiling and is extremely excited about the finds.
