New Pharaonic mummy found

Egypt State Information Service

Frustratingly vague, but here it is anyway:

Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities has stated that the mummy which had been happened upon at farms in the governorate of Al-Fayoum are pharohnic and priceless.

A council's committee said that the mummy belonged to an important figure in the pharaohnic age.

It cited advanced and excellent mummification materials and methods.

It called for immediately tranferring the treasure to the Egyptian Museum in downtown Cairo.
