“Dr. Ahmed Essa, the newly appointed Minister of State for Antiquities, announced the discovery of a skeleton of a young soldier in a late Roman site of Hisn Al-Bab to the south of Aswan.
The Austrian Archaeological Institute mission directed by Dr. Irene Forstner-Müller, discovered a residential construction which is most likely dated back to the Heraclian dynasty (610–695 A.D)
Dr. Essa said that the discovered skeleton is in a good condition and the preliminary study of the bones refers that he served in the military for a long time and died at the age of 25 to 35 years old. The skeleton’s identity was not identified but probably it belongs to an Egyptian soldier from Nubian origins” – via Luxor Times.
