Scientists have defined gender and age of people from a mysterious sarcophagus in Egypt


Scientists have defined who has been buried in the black sarcophagus found at excavation in Alexandria and opened on July 19. RIA Novosti reports about it. According to the ministry of affairs of monuments of antiquity, one of buried — the man of 35-39 years and 160-165,5 centimeters in height, the second — the man of a large constitution (179-184,5 centimeters) who presumably was 40-44 years old. Also with them the woman of 20-25 years and from 160 to 164 centimeters in height has been buried. It is noted that the opening noticed earlier in a skull of one of men, perhaps, has appeared as a result of surgery on cranial trepanation. Scientists will continue a research of remains from a sarcophagus by conducting DNA examination to find out degree of relationship of buried. Earlier it was reported that the sarcophagus found at a five-meter depth has been sealed in the period of Ptolemaeus's dynasty more than two thousand years ago (the IV—I century B.C.). Since then it wasn't opened what the untouched plaster coat under a cover testified to. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel. Subscribe!
