Archeologists found four child graves — the first of their kind — at the 3500-year-old former Egyptian quarry site called Gebel el-Silsila, according to Gizmodo.

Why it matters: The various levels of attention and care given to each of the child's burial give scientists a better idea of the social hierarchy at the time and what life was like working at the quarry during the Thutmosid period (1493-1401).

Background: This quarry provided stones used for temples and tombs in Upper Egypt, but also served as the home of a whole community, per Gizmodo. This is why there have been almost 70 tombs discovered on the site.

The graves:

  1. The best preserved, and likely most expensive, tomb held a child between 6 and 9 years old in what remained of a sarcophagus. The child was buried with several gifts and goods including beer jars, plates, bowls, wine vessles, bracelets and an amulet representing happiness and good luck.
  2. A child between the age of 5 and 8 was buried in similar fashion with after-life goods and a bracelet with the name of the Thutmosid period.
  3. The skeleton of a 2- to 3-year-old was found wrapped in linen and covered in what appeared to be the remains of a wooden coffin. There were no burial gifts or causes for death discovered.
  4. The fourth grave held the remains of a 5- to 8-year-old who appeared to have suffered from some kind of sickness. The body had been deposited straight into the earth and covered with quarry debris.

Trump tightens screws on ByteDance to sell Tiktok

President Trump added more pressure Friday night on China-based TikTok parent ByteDance to exit the U.S., ordering it to divest all assets related to the U.S. operation of TikTok within 90 days.

Between the lines: The order means ByteDance must be wholly disentangled from TikTok in the U.S. by November. Trump had previously ordered TikTok banned if ByteDance hadn't struck a deal within 45 days. The new order likely means ByteDance has just another 45 days after that to fully close the deal, one White House source told Axios.

In her first sit-down interview since being named Joe Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris talked about what she'll do to fight for women if elected VP, and how the Democrats are thinking about voter turnout strategies ahead of November.

What they're saying: "In a Biden-Harris administration women are going to be a priority, understanding that women have many priorities and all of them must be acknowledged," Harris told The 19th*'s Errin Haines-Whack.
