The archaeologists of Egypt have discovered the skeletal remains of a 13-year-old girl inside a tomb during the excavations outside of Cairo.
According to the researchers, the site dates back to the end of the Third Dynasty roughly 4600 years ago. They added that the tomb was empty apart from the skeleton, which was buried in the squatting position.
They also found two animal skulls and three ceramic vessels nearby that were likely placed as funerary offerings.
As per the Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities, the skull offerings appear to have come from bulls and there is no identity of the buried teen.
Earlier, the archaeologists excavated the site and found the tomb of prince Nefar-Maat, Sneferu’s oldest son.
