Czech Archeologists Find Burial Site of Pharaonic Princess 2012

Czech archeologists have unearthed the tomb of an unknown Pharaonic princess who lived in 2,500 BC. Judging by the inscription on the limestone pillars, she was the Pharaoh's favorite daughter and was named Shert Nabti.

Surrounding the princess' tomb were four limestone pillars with hieroglyphic inscriptions explaining her significance, antiquities officials said. 

The tomb, which dates to back to Egypt's fifth dynasty, around 2,500 BC, is located close to the Saqqara step pyramid, said AP. It is not open to the public. The discovery was made by an archeology team from the Czech Institute of Egyptology from Prague's Charles University, according to AFP. (source https://theworld.org/)
