Archaeologists excavating at the necropolis at Saqqara, 20 miles south of Cairo, have unearthed 300 ornate coffins from the New Kingdom period.

In ancient Egypt, people often wanted to be buried near pharaohs who had been deified.

Little is known of her yet, but that may change as her pyramid is fully excavated.
