Archeologists have discovered a 4,300-year-old pyramid structure about 12 miles from the Egyptian capital of Cairo. It is a 16-foot-tall pyramid.
Egypt’s renowned archeologist and antiquities chief Zahi Hawass made this announcement today at the Saqqara site, which was once a big burial site for the rulers of ancient Memphis.
According to Hawass, the pyramid belonged to Queen Sesheshet, the mother of King Teti, who was the founder of the 6th Dynasty of Egypt’s Old Kingdom.
They discovered the site after nearly two years of excavation and uncovered a 16-foot-tall pyramid structure.
This is the 118th pyramid discovered in Egypt according to Hawass.
