Archaeologists have unearthed tools, pottery and houses in the sunken city. Fifteen huge graves were also discovered. Specialists said that based on the size of the tombs, it indicates that high significant persons with high social standing were buried in that area.

So, this appears to be the town, the capital at the very beginning of Egyptian history."
