New Old Pyramid

It just floors me when they find a pyramid. Here you think everything has been discovered - at least everything as big as a pyramid - and they go ahead and find a new one. Apparently this one is especially cool as it is the tomb of Queen Sesheshet, a very powerful woman and the mother of Pharaoh Teti. Sitting there all these years under tons of sand. The National Geographic reports that they don't expect to find her mummy due to the activities of tomb robbers. But there should be a wealth of information in the inscriptions. Here are some great books on the construction of pyramids, to give you an inside look.
