考古人员在埃及发现了一座建于约3700年前的金字塔遗迹。代赫舒尔帝王墓古迹位于开罗南部,考古人员在这里发现了一件刻有十列古埃及象形文字的石块,并已挖开金字塔内部的一条通道。埃及国家古物部称,从该遗址出土的文物保存完好,为了考证这座金字塔的实际体积及相关信息,发掘工作仍在进行中。请听 Sebastian Usher 的报道

What's left of this latest pyramid to be uncovered is in good condition. For archaeologists, it's a significant find, potentially giving them further insight into the more than 120 pyramids already discovered.

The excavation is still at an early stage, the part of the inner structures being revealed including a corridor and a room. A little alabaster block holds intriguing hieroglyphic inscriptions. The remains of this little pyramid from the 13th dynasty are dwarfed by the Red Pyramid and the Bent Pyramid nearby, which narrowly predate the Great Pyramids at Giza further up the road to Cairo and clearly contributed vital expertise to their construction.

Egypt launched an ambitious project a year and a half ago dubbed ‘Scan Pyramids’ to try to discover secret chambers in these extraordinary structures that have defined the country's image for millennia, and so shed light on the mysteries that still surround how they were built.
