  Egypt on Saturday opened two of its oldest pyramids, located about 25 miles (40 kilometers) south of the capital Cairo, to visitors for the first time since 1965.   埃及周六向游客开放两座最古老的金字塔,这两座金字塔位于开罗南部25英里(40公里),是1965年以来首次开放。   Antiquities1 Minister Khaled el-Anany told reporters that tourists were are now allowed to visit the Bent2 Pyramid and its satellite pyramid in the Dahshur royal necropolis, which is part of the Memphis Necropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.   The Bent Pyramid, which was built during the Old Kingdom of the Pharaoh of Sneferu, in about 2600 B.C., is unique in that it has two internal structures. El-Anany said the Bent Pyramid represents a transitional form of pyramid construction between the Djoser Step Pyramid (2667-2648 B.C.) and the Meidum Pyramid (also about 2600 B.C.)   El-Anany also announced that Egyptian archaeologists have uncovered a collection of stone, clay and wooden sarcophagi, some of them with mummies, in the area. He said archaeologists also found wooden funerary masks along with instruments used for cutting stones, dating to the Late Period (664-332 B.C.).   Mostafa Waziri, secretary general of the Supreme3 Council of Antiquities, said they also uncovered large stone blocks along with limestone4 and granite5 fragments indicating the existence of ancient graves in the area.   Egypt has been whipping up publicity6 for its new historical discoveries in the hopes of reviving a devastated7 tourism sector8 still recovering from the turmoil9 following a 2011 uprising that toppled longtime autocrat10 Hosni Mubarak.
