Nebhepetre Mentuhotep II (reigned ca. 2046 BC – 1995 BC) was a Pharaoh of the 11th dynasty who reigned for 51 years. Around his 39th year on the throne he reunited Egypt thus ending the First Intermediary Period. Consequently, he is considered the first pharaoh of the Middle Kingdom.

Even the pyramids of Giza were built on older monuments.
Some of the cities in the Indus Valley were rebuilt 5 or 6 times.
Interesting that the older sites are the best constructed.
