The Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities has recently announced the discovery of a pyramid in Saqqara in Egypt which dates back 4,300 years. Saqqara is the vast ancient site of the magnificent necropolis and the burial site of the rulers of ancient Memphis and is located 30km south of the capital, Cairo.
The newly discovered pyramid is said to belong to Queen Sesheshet, who was the mother of King Teti, the first King and the founder of the 6th Dynasty of Egypt. The pyramid dates back to over four millennium ago and stands at five meters high today, although it is believed that it was around 14 meters high originally.
This is an important archaeological discovery that will further enhance our understanding and knowledge of the 6th Dynasty of the Old Kingdom.
