Because It's Awesome

"It's not often that you discover a whole new pyramid."

Five stories high buried under the sand.

Or one for a Queen--Queen Sesheshet, the mother of Pharaoh Teti, the founder of ancient Egypt's 6th dynasty.

Or one dating from ca. 2,300 BC. (Well, OK the pharaonic period known as "Old Kingdom" is also known as the Age of the Pyramids, but whatever.)

More at National Geographic.
