Remains of ancient Egyptian singer uncovered

The remains of Nehmes Bastet, a singer who lived 3,000 years ago in Egypt, has been found in the Valley of the Kings.

The woman in the coffin was the daughter of the high priest of Amon, Egypt’s Antiquities Minister Mohammed Ibrahim told AFP.

The discovery was important because “it shows that the Valley of the Kings was also used for the burial of ordinary individuals and priests of the 22nd Dynasty”, he added.
