Egypt unveiled on Saturday November 14 a hundred sarcophagi over 2,000 years old in perfect condition. They were discovered in the necropolis of Saqqara, south of Cairo. This discovery intrigued our young journalists of the day: iThey are students in CM1 at the Jules Verne school in Viry-Châtillon (Essonne). To answer them: the show invites the Egyptologist Amandine Marshall. She is notably the author of the Youtube channel ToutankaTube, devoted to ancient Egypt.
At the microphone, Shyrel asks the first question: “What are the sarcophagi?” asks the schoolgirl. Britanny then asks who discovered these sarcophagi: “Was it archaeologists?” She would also like to make a point of chronology: “Did ancient Egypt come before prehistory or after prehistory?” For his part, Lenzo wonders if the pyramids were made of sand or stone.
