Lost Pyramid Discovered in Egypt?

In a TV show that aired on Channel 5 in the UK, called 'Opening Egypt’s Great Tomb', Dr Vassil Dobrev, an archaeologist with 30 years of experience working in Egypt, believes there are traces of a hidden pyramid buried beneath the desert sands of Saqqara.

The site is just 19 miles from the Great Pyramid of Giza, in south Saqqara, just north-west of the burial complex of Pharaoh Pepi I in the region known as Tabbet al-Guesh.


In Dobrev’s opinion, he think it is the pyramid of Userkare, the second king of the 6th dynasty. This pharaoh only reigned for 2 to 5 years in the late 24th to early 23rd century BC. His predecessor was Teti and his successor was Pepi I so the fact that the flat plateau is located close to the pyramid complex of Pepi I, adds credence to the hypothesis.


In other news, archaeologists in Turkey have uncovered a section of a prehistoric fortress wall at the Yumuktepe mound, a site that dates back to 7,000 BC, whilst the fortress wall dates back to around 5,000 BC.


Located in the city of Mersin in southern Turkey, the new discoveries at the site means the ancient fortress is much older than was once believed. Watch the video now to learn more about these two news stories and please like, comment and subscribe!
