ARCHAELOGICAL SEARCH MAY REVEAL CLEOPATRA’S TOMB


Archaeologists are to search three sites in Egypt that they say may contain the tomb of doomed lovers Anthony and Cleopatra. Excavation at the sites, which are near a temple west of the coastal city of Alexandria, is due to begin next week.

archeologistTeams working in the area said the recent discovery of tombs containing 10 mummies suggested that Anthony and Cleopatra might be buried close by. The teams also found a bust of Cleopatra and coins carrying her image.

The archaeologists from Egypt and the Dominican Republic have been excavating at the temple of Taposiris Magna for the last three years.

There they discovered a series of deep shafts in which it is thought that Anthony and Cleopatra might be buried, Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities said in a statement.
