Saqqara: Tombs over 4,000 Years Old Discovered


This was in the news about a week ago.

From The BBC

Two tombs dating back more than 4,000 years have been discovered in Egypt at Saqqara, south of Cairo.

The head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt, Dr Zahi Hawass, said the burial sites belonged to a pyramid builder and a singer.

Although archaeologists have been exploring Egypt intensively for more than 150 years, Dr Hawass believes only 30% of what lies beneath the ground has been uncovered.
