Archaeologists digging at Saqqara south of Cairo have uncovered a small pyramid believed to be that of the Sixth Dynasty Queen Sesheshet. The find brings to 118 the total number of pyramids discovered in Egypt.

The pyramid measures five metres in height although the top part is missing; experts claim it originally rose to 14 m with a square base and sides sloping at an angle of 51 degrees.

It is believed to date back 4,300 years to the dynasty founded by Teti, son of Sesheshet.
