Archaeologists working in Egypt in December 2021 found the remains of three ancient Egyptians who were buried with tongues of gold.
The remains found were of a man, a woman, and a 3-year-old child, according to LiveScience.
The bones were in two tombs. In one tomb, which had been opened and raided by grave robbers, the bones of the woman and child were found in a limestone sarcophagus.
The man’s grave had not been disturbed.
“This is very important because it’s rare to find a tomb that is totally sealed,” said Esther Pons Mellado, co-director of the archaeological effort, according to The National.

The man’s tomb contained amulets and about 400 ceramic funerary figurines.
The tongues date from the Roman period in Egypt, which began in about 30 B.C., The National reported. However, the tombs date back to 525 B.C.
The graves were found in what was the ancient Egyptian city of Oxyrhynchus, near the current community of El Bahnasa, which is about 100 miles south of Cairo.
