Egyptian workers examine the Saqqara Serapeum, a long tunnel of underground tombs for sacred bulls discovered in 1850, on June 5, 2008. The tunnel has been closed to the public for repairs for the past ten years.

The tombs lie near a recently rediscovered pyramid that had been lost for decades under the sands of Saqqara, south of Cairo.

The team that found the pyramid also discovered a new part of the ceremonial road that ancient Egyptian priests used to carry the bulls' bodies from a mummification chamber to the Serapeum, where the animals where interred.
