At the moment, scientists have found that all these burials of the ancient Egyptians belong to the period of rule in ancient Egypt of the 26th dynasty of the pharaohs. During this period, and it dates from about 688 to 525 BC, Ancient Egypt was an independent state, and its capital was in the city of Sais. But at this time other countries tried from time to time to conquer Egypt, which the Persians finally succeeded in doing in 525.

So far, little is known about who exactly is buried in ancient graves, as well as about what these people were ill with and what they died from, and what class they belonged to. Scientists continue their research, because the discovery of new ancient Egyptian burials became known only on December 20 this year.

According to the information provided by representatives of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities of Egypt, in some graves, scientists found grave goods in the form of golden idols that depicted the ancient gods. Among them, scientists identified the goddess Isis, who was associated with healing and magic, the goddess Bastet, who had the head of a cat and was considered the patroness of people, as well as the falcon-headed god Horus.

According to Campbell Price of the University of Manchester, UK, who did not take part in excavations, scientists now know that the ancient Egyptians considered their gods to be created from golden flesh.

“The placement of these golden idols on the body of a deceased person could affect his” divinity “. That is, on the one hand, the deceased became almost equal in rights to the gods and united with them, and on the other hand, these idols protected him from the wrath of these same gods. At least, that's what they thought in ancient Egypt,” Price says.
