On June 5, 2008, a worker dusts off a large slab of granite that was part of a sarcophagus found in the burial chamber of a recently rediscovered pyramid.

The ancient pyramid had been reported in the 19th century but was subsequently lost under the desert. When a team led by Zahi Hawass, secretary general of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, found the site again, it took a year and a half just to remove all the sand.

Long since reduced to its foundations, the pyramid dates back about 4,000 years and is most likely the resting place of Pharaoh Menkauhor, Hawass said. The ruler was the last king of the 5th dynasty, which lasted from 2494 to 2345 B.C.
