A man walks through a passage in the well-known bent pyramid of King Snefru, which had been closed to visitors since 1965, in Dahshur, some 30 kilometres (20 miles) south of Cairo, on July 13, 2019, after it was reopened by the Egyptian Antiquities Minister. Egyptian archaeologists unveiled Saturday several sarcophagi with some containing well-preserved mummies, along with the remains of an ancient wall dating to the Middle Kingdom nearly 4,000 years ago. The finds were made during excavation work in the ancient royal necropolis of Dahshur on the west bank of the Nile River, south of Cairo. The area is home to some of Egypt's oldest pyramids including the bent pyramid of King Sneferu, the first pharaoh of Egypt's 4th dynasty. Mohamed el-Shahed / AFP
