During excavations in the Saqqara antiquities area, a team of the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities found a group of pottery vessels with inscriptions in the ancient Egyptian language.

What sparked the team's interest was finding a group of cheese molds inside these pots, and it is likely that they date back to the late period in the time period of the 26th and 27th Pharaonic dynasties.

What is meant by white cheese is halloumi cheese, which was formerly called “Haram” and the name changed during Coptic times. The mission also revealed more than a thousand sets of faience, dozens of wooden cat statues, animal mummies, and a set of pots that are still closed, and the mission will open them to find out the secrets contained within them.

This site is considered one of the largest archaeological sites, as research work began in 2018, and the mission was able to uncover rock tombs, including 3 tombs from the New Kingdom and four from the Old Kingdom, and wooden boxes belonging to the god Horus.

This site, these discoveries were classified as one of the ten archaeological discoveries and the most eye-catching, according to the American Archaeological Journal.
