"The tombs are built on a 50 meter by 70 meter area that includes 30 burial wells," it said.
A 10-ton pink granite coffin for a minister of king Sobekhotep II, from the 13th dynasty of the second intermediate period, was found in one of the wells.
Funeral drawings that are decorated with images of another official presenting sacrifices for the same king were found in the site.
The mission also unearthed a building made of mud bricks that were used for presenting sacrifices. The building housed a group of statues that carried hieroglyphic symbols, a large number of amulets, and hundreds of funeral stamps.
