Mud tomb found near oldest Egypt pyramid

By RobotGod     Feb 19, 2007 in World
A mud brick tomb dating back more than 4,000 years has been discovered near Egypt's most ancient pyramid in the Saqqara complex south of Cairo, antiquities official announced Monday. The tomb, which was found by an Egyptian-Australian mission, belonged to
The tomb has two wooden offering tables. It also has a funerary area with lots of burial chambers, and false doors that ancient Egyptians say would be used by the souls of the dead, tombs, and temples. Found alongside the collapsed pyramid of Teti. This is a great find and frankly I am surprised to hear about it. Zahi Hawass always plays things extremely cautiously with releasing info on new finds. I wish the article had more details. I hope we learn more about Ka-Hay and his wife, and what role they might have played during their lives. This is very fascinating.
