4,300-Year-Old Pyramid Found in Egypt
A 4,300-year-old pyramid has been discovered in Saqqara, Egypt, the sprawling necropolis and burial site of the rulers of ancient Memphis, Egypt's chief archaeologist said Tuesday.
The pyramid is said to belong to Queen Sesheshet, the mother of King Teti who was the founder of the 6th Dynasty of Egypt's Old Kingdom.
Egypt's antiquities chief Zahi Hawass made the announcement Tuesday at the site in Saqqara, about 12 miles south of Cairo.
