Saqqara is an ancient burial ground in Egypt where all the tombs are standing including the Pyramid of Djoser which has six tiers and has four sides, it is thought the pyramid is the oldest in Egypt thought to have been built in the 27th century BC.

Djoser was the king of the third dynasty in 2667-2648 BC he is believed to have ruled for around 19-years, just long enough to get the pyramid built.

The latest finds by archeologists in Egypt are currently on show at a museum in Saqqara which is designed to help with tourism.
