Egyptians Find 4,000-Year-Old MummyBreaking News
Egypt's official Middle East News Agency quoted Zap Haws, chief of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, as saying Tuesday that archaeologists discovered the mummy in Saqqara, 20 kilometers (12 miles) south of Cairo as they were cleaning a nearby archaeological site.
Hawass said the doctor, named Qar, lived under the sixth dynasty from about B.C. 2350 to B.C. 2180 and that the upper part of the tomb was discovered in 2000 while the sarcophagus was found during more recent cleaning work.
