SAQQARA, Egypt

Egypt's chief archaeologist has announced the discovery of a 4,300-year-old pyramid in Saqqara,
the sprawling necropolis and burial site of the rulers of ancient Memphis.

The pyramid is said to belong to Queen Sesheshet, the mother of King Teti who was the founder of
the 6th Dynasty of Egypt's Old Kingdom.

Egypt's antiquities chief Zahi Hawass made the announcement Tuesday at the site in Saqqara, about
12 miles south of Cairo.

Hawass' team has been excavating the site for two years. He says the discovery was only made two months
ago when it became clear that the 16-foot-tall structure uncovered from the sand was a pyramid.

Hawass says the new pyramid is the 118th discovered so far in Egypt.

                                          Egyptian Archaeologists Discover Ancient Pyramid






By VoiceOfAmerica News
11 November 2008
 
Egyptian archaeologists have announced the discovery of a 4,300-year-old pyramid in the sands south
of Cairo.

The structure was found at the burial site of Saqqara two months ago.

Egypt's antiquities chief Zahi Hawass told reporters Tuesday the pyramid likely belonged to Queen Sesheshet,
the mother of King Teti, who founded Egypt's Sixth Dynasty.

Two of the Pharaoh's wives are buried nearby.

Cultural authorities say the structure originally reached about 14 meters high, but only the five-meter-high
base remains. They say thieves likely have already looted any treasure that was in the pyramid, the 118th
found in Egypt.

Saqqara is perched high above Cairo on a desert plateau that stretches for 70 kilometers. It was a burial
ground for the rulers of ancient Egypt.
 


Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
