Came across this and saw that it hadn't yet been posted. Thought I would share it with our subject matter experts here on ATS.
Archaeologists working near the ancient settlement of Edfu, in southern Egypt, have uncovered a step pyramid that dates back about 4,600
years, predating the Great Pyramid of Giza by at least a few decades.
This is very interesting, The age of the great pyramids at Giza is a hotly contested subject. Different theorists have proposed ages of the 4 - 5,000
yr range mentioned in the article to upwards of 100,000 years and many others in between.
I find the fact that pyramids are still being found in Egypt in this day and age fascinating. Personally I am not very big into Egyptology, I'm just
generally interested in ancient civilizations and wanted to share this here.
Here is what the site looked like before the excavation began.
And here is a fairly recent thread on the pyramids I think is interesting, some of you may want to check it out if you haven't had an opportunity
