Archaeologists Unearth Mysterious Black Sarcophagus In Egypt [PIC]

Cool! Egyptian archeologists recently unearthed an enormous black granite sarcophagus said to be the largest ever found in Alexandria, Egypt, The Guardian reports. Archaeologists date the site back to the Ptolemic era, between 305 and 30 BCE. They don’t know who or what lies inside but have decided to crack it, despite its eerie exterior.

In the next few weeks, a team of engineers will visit the site to provide heavy lifting equipment and structural supports to allow the removal of the lid. Once inside, mummification and restoration specialists will be on hand to ensure the contents, exposed for the first time in millennia, are preserved.
