An ancient pyramid that’s never been seen before was discovered 25 miles south of Cairo in the Dahshur royal necropolis. The remains of the pyramid are from a corridor and are thought to be 3,700 years old.
In addition to the corridor, there was an alabaster block uncovered which has ten lines of hieroglyphics on it.
The pyramid differs in construction from the Great Pyramids of Giza in that it’s smooth on the sides. It is close the nicknamed Bent Pyramid, which got its name for having a sloping top. The Bent pyramid was created as a burial spot for high-ranking courtiers.
The archeologists involved say that the pyramid is in pretty good condition and that they will continue excavating in hopes of uncovering more of the smooth sides it was built with.
