Zahi Hawass: The Serapeum in Saqqara will open in December

Sunday, October 18, 2009

We are also working now to restore the Serapeum at Saqqara. The Serapeum was discovered by Auguste Mariette in 1851, and consists of a series of huge underground galleries for the burial of the sacred Apis bulls. Burials of sacred cult animals were very common in Saqqara until the end of the Ptolemaic Period. We hope to open the Serapeum to the public in the coming December. The site of Saqqara was very important to the ancient Egyptians, and many of the monuments are in need of conservation and restoration. The SCA is dedicated to preserving these monuments so they may share the magic of ancient Egypt with the world.
