Remains of soldier who lived 1,400 years ago found in Egypt
Cairo: Archaeologists found the 1,400-year-old remains of a soldier in Aswan, a city in southern Egypt, Minister of State for Antiquities Ahmed Eisa said.
The soldier`s remains were discovered in a field that dates to the Late Roman Period and Early Middle Age near the border of Egypt and Nubia.
The find shows that conflicts broke out periodically along the frontier between Egypt and Nubia, a region that covered parts of southern Egypt and northern Sudan.
The soldier`s remains are in good condition and he appeared to be between 25 and 35 at the time of his death, the ministry said, adding that he was stabbed just under the chest.
The body was buried with stones from a border wall that apparently collapsed during the fighting.
