Egypt revealed a rare trove of 30 ancient wooden coffins Saturday that were preserved for over millennia in Luxor's archaeologically rich Valley of the Kings.The sarcophagi date back to the 22nd Dynasty, founded around 3,000 years ago in the 10th century B.C. Despite their age, black, green, red and yellow paintings of snakes, birds, lotus flowers and hieroglyphics that cover the coffins are still clearly visible.Discoveries of ancient Egyptian relics had slowed after the 2011 Arab Spring revolution that toppled long-time autocrat Hosni Mubarak and plunged the country in political turmoil, according to Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Enany.This year, over 11 million visitors traveled to Egypt, following a sharp dip in numbers after the revolution.
