Archaeologists Found Villages That Preceded ‘Pharaohs’: Egypt


Egyptian archaeologists have been able to extract pieces of evidence of the oldest village in the Nile Delta. This depicts proofs of the existence of human life as early as 5,000 B.C., just before the Giza’s pyramids were built. Giza Pyramids are the oldest and largest pyramid in Egypt and comes under the category of ‘seven wonders of the world’.

Egyptian Antiquities Ministry said, on Sunday, said that this Neolithic site was originated in tell el Samara, which is 140 Kilometres away from the capital city Cairo.

Frederic Gio, the Chief archaeologist who, along with his team, has discovered this Pharaos said that they found a heap of animal bones that signified the area was populated by humans then. The modern research articulates that the famous pyramids of Giza have been built in 2,500 B.C.

As per the Ministry, the newly discovered site encompasses numerous habitations, dating to different periods. The recovered organic material would be put together to find out about the prehistoric societies that lived in the Nile Delta.
