Archeologists Announce The Discovery of a 3,700 Year-Old Pyramid In Egypt

A land steeped in ancient history and thought to be the birthplace of Western civilization, Egypt — and its monuments in particular — continues to mystify and intrigue historians and archaeologists. The majority of these monuments reside on the west side of the Nile, known as the Land of the Dead. And on the east side of the Nile, monuments were reserved for the use of the living.

A prosperous and highly religious people, Egyptians took advantage of the land they lived on and its great resources. A nation of perfectionists, their attention to detail served them well throughout their industrious endeavours. Because the Egyptians believes their king a mortal god, who became one with the immortal gods when he died, it became necessary to protect his body, and so the attention to proper burial came to be, hence the giant pile of solid stone.


Along with the pyramids serving as tomb, they also functioned as a temple complex for the deified Pharaoh.

An interesting thing to note is that the bodies one would assume to find in the pyramids weren’t there, or anywhere else, for that matter! So many discoveries remain to be uncovered despite what we already know, and this is perhaps the most exciting part of it all.

The team found a pyramid believed to be 3,700 years old, dating back to ancient Egypt’s 13th Dynasty.
