Archaeologists open ancient Egyptian tombs to find 50 mummies with brains removed

ANCIENT Egyptian tombs have been opened for the first time in over 2,500 years to reveal more than 50 mummies with their brains removed.

Archaeologists in Giza, 10 miles south from the famous pyramids, found the last of the 59 untouched painted coffins yesterday.

The excavating started two months ago when a 36 ft deep burial shaft was uncovered containing 13 bodies- who experts believe were high priests.

The team continued their dig to discover two more shafts, 32 and 39 ft deep, also filled with more coffins in good condition with their original colours.

The mummies, who had their brains removed with iron hooks through their nose, as well as their coffins will be displayed to the public at the Grand Egyptian Museum.
