EGYPT: December - 2012.
Saqqara. Headless Pyramid.
The Headless Pyramid was discovered in 1842 by the German archaeologist Karl Lepsius, during his excavations at
Saqqara. This Pyramid was called as the "Headless Pyramid" because of the the absence of its exterior.
Time passed and the Pyramid gradually sank under the desert sands. The attempts of archaeologists to find it once again - appeared in vain. Luck faced only to the archeology team of Dr. Zahi Hawass in 2008. A year and a half was spent on removing a seven-meter layer of sand, until the Pyramid was found again, 166 years later after Karl Lepsius' discovery.
