Cairo- The Egyptian Ministry of State for Antiquities announced on Monday it has found remains of an old pyramid dating to the 13th dynasty (1649 – 1783 B.C.) north of King Sneferu’s bent pyramid in the Dahshur royal necropolis south of Cairo.

This new discovery has been added to the series of important excavations announced in Egypt in the few past months in different regions like Cairo, Aswan, and Luxor.

Alaa Al-Shahat, the head of the Central Administration Department for Cairo and Giza Antiquities, said all the parts of the discovered pyramid were in very good condition.
