The Faiyum, a fertile area situated in a depression west of the Nile river used to be swampland 3,500 years ago. As it was not far from the Middle Kingdom capital city it was used as burial grounds by Sesostris II and Amenemhet III.
Thanks for later reading.
Rumor has it that they also uncovered the ruins of Helen Thomas’ earliest office in the city.
Imagine that, a 7000 year old city on a 6000 year old planet.
It looks like this is about 1500 to 2000 years before the first dynasty, which is nearly as long as dynastic Egypt lasted.
Thanks Fred Nerks and JennysCool.

Interesting find. I wonder if the Ancient Egyptians saw those remains. I wonder what people lived in that area at the time. I know Sumeria was not that far from that area.
Zahi Hawwas is a tireless self-promoter in the Bill Clintont class. I notice that he didn’t make the discovery.
