More Pyramids Found

June 5, 2008—The foundations of a pyramid long lost under the sands of Egypt lie exposed on June 2, 2008. Archaeologists today announced the rediscovery of the ruins in Saqqara, south of Cairo.

The so-called Headless Pyramid was reported in the early 19th century by a German archaeologist, but its exact location was subsequently lost.

With its recent rediscovery, archaeologists have determined that the pyramid probably belonged to Pharaoh Menkauhor, who ruled from 2421 to 2414 B.C. Teams also found a new part of a sacred road at the site that is thought to have been used for processions of mummified royal bulls. (Full Story at nationalgeographic)
