"An Australian archaeological team operating in Egypt has unearthed two 5,000-year-old cemeteries outside the capital."

Edit: later link
It added that two large limestone tombs dated to the Old Kingdom, 2575-2134 BC, also were found in Helwan that have the same architectural style as some in Giza and Saqqara, their walls containing a collection of small chapels and niches.
I hope National Geo', or someone does a doco'. The article states a 'Tablet' was unearthed.
I would love to see the glyph's

Yeah, I'd love to see that tablet too! I wonder how many more of these cemetaries are waiting to be found...

They must have found a hell of a lot of mummies there too. Wonder what they will do with that??...
