Archaeologists Recently Stumbled Upon Previously Unknown Underground Structures At An Ancient Egyptian Cemetery That Were Likely Related To Funerary Practices

The shallow structure may have been an entryway leading to the deeper structure. The deeper structure was at a depth of 16 to 33 feet and measured 33 feet by 33 feet.

It is unclear what the structures were for, but the researchers assume they are related to funerary practices.

They are unable to identify the material that the structures were made from through the surveys. Excavations of the remains will need to be carried out in order to determine their age and purpose.
