Archaeologists have found the remains of Queen Neit’s Ancient Egyptian-era temple in Saqqara near Cairo, the Egyptian authorities announced.

The temple is 4,500 years old. Neit was the wife of King Teti, the first king of the Sixth Dynasty who ruled Egypt between 2323 and 2150 BC.

The specialists discovered 22 burial holes about 10-12 meters deep, with more than 50 wooden coffins from the New Kingdom.

According to the former minister of antiquities and famous archaeologist Zahi Hawass, “this is the first time that burials from that period have been found in the Saqqara area.”

“In fact, these discoveries rewrite the history of this region in many ways, especially during the 18th and 19th dynasties of the pharaohs, when burials began to appear around the pyramid of the Pharaoh of the Old Kingdom,” he noted.

Archaeologists found numerous artifacts, including a papyrus four meters long and one meter wide with the texts of the Book of the Dead.

Located about 30 km from Cairo, Saqqara is part of the Necropolis in the ancient capital of Egypt, Memphis, which includes the famous pyramids of Giza.
