Egyptian Archaeological Findings Dated

Archaeologists have dated three tombs found earlier this year in the Saqqara area of Egypt, next to the Step Pyramid of King Djoser, as more than 3,000 years old.

One of the tombs which contained a scribe named Ka-Hay and his wife, was made of mud bricks and was dated at 4,00o years old. The other, a limestone grave dated at 3,350 years old, belonged to a pharoah’s butler, according to the Associated Press.
