Step pyramid: 3rd dynasty 2780 BC
Mummies of royals in museum. Thutmosis had gathered together in one cache to save from robberies. Man enlarging house in 1882 for new daughter-in-law found 41 mummies and started selling them until jealous other son ratted him out feeling he was favoring his brother & told the police on his father.
Line of Nile Valley. Trees end abruptly due to elevation.
The stepped pyramid was the first pyramid. You can tell from the shape they were still learning, as it is not symmetrical.
